1. A method comprising:

  • generating a common pilot signal, first user data and second user data;

    transmitting, within a time slot and across a sector, the common pilot signal using a first subset of orthogonal resources;

    transmitting, within the time slot, a first spatially-separable signal comprising the first user data, using a second subset of orthogonal resources; and

    transmitting, within the time slot, a second spatially-separable signal comprising the second user data, using at least a part of the second subset of orthogonal resources,wherein the first and second subsets of orthogonal resources are respective first and second subsets of tones within an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system.
