This paper is novel real symbol-wise ML decodable STBCs with balanced information distribution per codeword are constructed systemically for arbitrary number of transmit antennas. Compared with the existing real symbol-wise ML decodable STBCs in IEEE 802.16e standard, the proposed STBCs also have lower Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR) and better performance even without adaptive antenna grouping based on channel state information(CSI) feedback.
