This paper presents the effect of multipath propagation on the performance of smart antenna. The influence of the correlation between the source multipath components on the uplink beam pattern shape, as well as the resulting signal-noise-plus-interference ratio when the base station uses the RLS uplink beamformer was investigated. For this purpose, various communication scenarios are simulated. Both the favorable and undesirable communication scenarios in the multipath propagation environment were found out. These results will be useful for the wireless communications engineers who deal with smart antenna application in mobile communication.
