The influence of correlation, efficiency, and antenna branch signal unbalance on receive diversity gain and Shannon capacity is investigated. A case study using closely spaced dipoles, with mutual coupling included, is used for the analysis. These results are compared with results derived from measured embedded radiation patterns of dual-antenna mock-ups.
