A numerical study is presented, where MIMO capacity of wireless channels is considered, when using stacked microstrip antennas as an air interface. The mutual coupling between these antennas is taken into account in capacity calculations and compared with case where mutual coupling is neglected. Also, comparison is made with performance of dipoles as air interfaces.
