Channel estimation techniques for lsas backhaul and the like

In certain embodiments, a macrocell base station (bs), such as an lsas bs, estimates its backhaul channels with a small-cell bs (e.g., a relay or repeater) by averaging multiple instances of a received pilot signal repeatedly transmitted by the small-cell bs. Since the macrocell and small-cell bss are stationary, averaging the received pilot signal transmissions over time results in the zero-temporal-mean time-dependent component of each backhaul channel as well as zero-temporal-mean noise and interference signals from other wireless nodes to substantially cancel out, enabling the macrocell bs to relatively infrequently estimate a relatively time-invariant, dominant component for each backhaul channel.
