1. A receiver for use in a wireless communications system, the receiver comprising:

  • an antenna, wherein the antenna comprises a first antenna element and a second antenna element;

    a transceiver operatively coupled to the antenna and configured to transmit and receive electromagnetic signals using the antenna; and

    a processor operatively coupled to the transceiver, the processor configured to;

    receive a first signal transmission from a remote station via the first antenna element and a second signal transmission from the remote station via the second antenna element simultaneously;

    determine first signal information for the first signal transmission;

    determine second signal information for the second signal transmission, wherein the second signal information is different than the first signal information;

    determine a set of weighting values based on the first signal information and the second signal information, wherein the set of weighting values is configured to be used by the transceiver to construct one or more beam-formed transmission signals;

    cause the transceiver to transmit a third signal to the remote station via the antenna, the third signal comprising content based on the set of weighting values.
