In this paper, a theoretical method which allows to compare antenna diversity systems is described. A new metric, the "referenced diversity gain" is also introduced. A new small UWB (Ultra Wide Band) antenna (France Telecom R&D patent) is used in a dual-antenna system which is compared with another system using an UWB antenna designed by the LCIS/INPG laboratory.
