The properties of a four element slot antenna array mounted on a PDA for a MIMO system are investigated by means of a Finite Difference Time Domain analysis and a multipath channel model. The effects of changing the positions of the antenna elements on the PDA box and the effect of the box being held in a human hand are investigated.
