In linear service areas such as a tunnel and along railways, leaky coaxial cable (LCX) is widely used as antenna for radio communication. Usually, one LCX is utilized as one antenna. Therefore it requires more than one LCX to configure an multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system. We have recently proposed a method that one single LCX can be utilized as two antennas by feeding different RF transmit signals to each end of the proposed cable. In this paper, we compare 2×2 MIMO system performance using the proposed LCX and using conventional monopole antennas over 2.4GHz band for WLAN appliances. The results confirm that our proposed 2×2 MIMO channel using a single LCX can realize a good channel condition and bit error ratio (BER) performance for MIMO transmission even within a highly correlated propagation condition. On the other hand, it also shows that the proposed LCX MIMO is promising technique for communications over linear-cell environments from the simulated results which considering the path loss and radiation pattern of LCX characteristics.
