In this paper, a general Alamouti space time block code structure is proposed for multiple-input multiple-output-orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) in WiMAX systems for 2 X NR antenna configurations. The signal detection technology used in this paper for MIMO-OFDM system is Zero-Forcing Equalization (linear detection technique). The analysis of Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) vs Bit Error Rate (BER) for MIMO in WiMAX system has been done. For this purpose modulation technique QPSK has been considered for different convolution-codes (CC)-rates. Also Reed-Solomon (RS) codes have been implemented along with CC codes. Comparisons between ideal channel, Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) and practical fading channel, Rayleigh channel has been done. Also the comparison is provided on the basis of SNR vs BER graph for different antenna configurations.
