1. A network comprising:

  • a base station; and

    a plurality of subscriber units to communicate with the base station using an orthogonal frequency-division multiple-access (OFDMA) protocol;

    the base station including a memory to store broadband spatial signature vectors associated with each subscriber, the vectors being a function of frequency; and

    traffic channel allocation logic to allocate OFDMA channels using the broadband spatial signature vectors of the subscribers.
