This paper presents the decoding of the I-Q Space-Time (ST) codes. In this paper, the decoding problem of I-Q ST codes is formulated. The use of the super-trellis to solve the decoding problem results in an increased decoding complexity. Therefore, a simplified decoding algorithm is proposed. It is based on symbol-by-symbol detection of the Q/I components in the I/Q decoders. Simulation results showed that I-Q ST codes with the new algorithm provide coding gains over ST codes having the same complexity but with a single encoder.
