Methods and apparatus to account for effective downlink channels arising from beamforming uplink reference signals

According to the teachings herein, a wireless device enhances uplink channel estimation at a node in a supporting wireless communication network by beamforming its uplink reference signal transmission towards the node, and correspondingly compensates for the effect of that beamforming when receiving a downlink transmission that was adapted in dependence on the uplink channel transmission. Such processing provides significant advantages in multiple-input-multiple-output, mimo, systems that use a potentially large number of antennas for downlink mimo transmissions and assume reciprocity between the uplink and downlink channels. ...
