This paper presents the idea of interpolating between multiple sounding bursts to estimate the individual channels of a MIMO scenario. The performance of the proposed technique depends on the $f_dT$ product and the number of transmit and receive antennas. In particular, this technique can be effective if the $f_dT$ product is not too high and the number of antennas is not too large. Furthermore, there is a considerable difference in the performance of the 16 channels in the $4{\times}4$ MIMO case because the sounding bursts spread farther apart with time, meaning that the Doppler in the channel causes a greater error for the channels.
