In real environments, channel reciprocity cannot be directly exploited between uplink and downlink in time division duplex (TDD) due to antenna gain mismatch. Previous
work about antenna calibration mainly focused on single cell. This work proposes an adaptive scheme for antenna calibration between two cooperative BSs. The proposed scheme aims at achieving an equal ratio between antenna transmitter and receiver analog gains among cooperative BSs in flat fading channels. The essential idea is to relay calibration parameter through a calibration path. This procedure can be controlled by a certain BS dubbed primary BS. Evaluation of the proposed scheme is carried out by computer simulation.
