In this paper, using simulation based on multi-ray multi-dimensional multi-antenna state radio channel RF model, we investigate the radiation patterns of the reconfigurable antenna for different states determined by the antenna inclination angle and show its effect on the outdoor channel characteristics in terms of its temporal and spatial variability. We also show, via simulation of a coded communication system, the bit-error-rate performance benefits attained using the best antenna state determined by the average channel gain per codeword. © 2013 IEEE.
