This paper addresses the problem of transmit beamforming in open spectrum communication systems. In these scenarios, the operator or the data communication provider delivers a set of base stations to the final users under no radio planning strategy. In order to deal with such an uncoordinated communication system, this paper presents a centralized algorithm for calculating the optimal precoding strategy the via semidefinite relaxation technique. The problem to be solved is a novel design of minimum norm beamformers under QoS and received power constraints. Numerical results will show the performance of the method.
