In this paper we investigate the application of Blind Source Separation (BSS) algorithms for the decoding of linearly precoded MIMO communication systems and for the design of limited feedback channels that send the Channel Status Information (CSI) from the receiver to the transmitter. The advantage of using BSS is that the MIMO channel can be continuously tracked without the need of pilot symbols. CSI is only sent through the feedback channel when the BSS algorithm indicates the presence of a strong channel variation.
