Abstract: This paper will be a study of two types of channel estimation techniques (LS & MMSE) that based on comb pilot insertion arrangement in fast fading channels environment which is consist of two types Rayleigh & Rician channel models, and a comparison between the two techniques will be done depending on different parameter and implement these into a simulation program which will be here MATLAB.
