Claim of US Patent No. 10,194,465

1. A method of transmitting feedback information by a receiving apparatus in a wireless communication system supporting a multiple input multiple output (MIMO) scheme, the method comprising:selecting an antenna group among one or more antenna groups, the one or more antenna groups being divided from a plurality of antenna included in a transmitting apparatus based on a number of receiving apparatuses and a number of feedback information bits; and
transmitting, to the transmitting apparatus, an antenna group identifier (ID) of the selected antenna group and the feedback information which includes information related to channel quality which the receiving apparatus is capable of acquiring if the at least one antenna of the selected antenna group is used,
wherein each of the antenna groups includes one or more antennas.
