The channel estimation has become very vast field due to different types of interference present in wireless channel and in equipments. In this thesis, estimation algorithms for digital communications systems in the presence of Additive White Gaussian noise and Multipath environment are explored and their performance is investigated. In particular, least square Error and Zero forcing equalizers are used to provide the optimum solution and compensate for Inter-Symbol error. As the BER performance of equalizers in variable in multipath fading channel therefore we have combined Equal Gain combining and Maximal Ratio Combing Diversity techniques, and searched that Maximal Ratio combining techniques is able to fight with Co-Channel interference and Inter-symbol interference problem.
