Abstract We establish an upper bound on the information-theoretic capacity of line-of-sight (LOS) multiantenna channels with arbitrary antenna arrangements and identify array structures that, properly configured, can attain at least 96.6% of such capacity at every signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). In the process, we determine how to configure the arrays as a function of the SNR. At low- and high-SNR specifically, the configured arrays revert to simpler structures and become capacity-achieving.
