Land Mobile Satellite (LMS) networks, forming a key component of future mobile Internet and broadcasting, can benefit from Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) techniques to improve spectral efficiency and outage. LMS-MIMO networks can be obtained using multiple satellites with single polarization antennas with spatial multiplex channel coding, or by a single satellite with dual polarization antennas providing polarization multiplex channel coding. In this paper, a guide is presented showing the steps required to implement a simple empirical-stochastic dual circular polarized LMS-MIMO narrowband channel model with validation both with and without a line of sight. The model is based on an S-band tree-lined road measurement campaign using dual circular polarizations at low elevations. Application of the model is aimed at LMS-MIMO physical layer researchers and system designers, who need an easy to implement and reliable model, representative of typical LMS-MIMO channel conditions.
