hi i want to ask whether there is any difference between taking n-point ifft and then fft for OFDM Vs taking ifft and then n-point fft in matlab. the difference i get is the signal with n-point ifft and then fft has a spectrum which do not have good resolution can anyone help me in this regard. Regards

That's the root cause of your misunderstanding. Julius

Use one copy and a comma separated send list. See my replies in comp.soft-sys.matlab. http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.matlab/ msg/b513535c2ef60b22?hl=en Hope this helps. Greg
