Abstract A receiving apparatus for receiving signals in a digital telecommunication system and a synchronizing method for synchronizing the receiving apparatus . The receiving apparatus includes a receiver for receiving a reference symbol having at least two repetition patterns. One of the, repetition patterns is phase-shifted in relation to the other. The receiving apparatus is synchronized in the digital telecommunication system using the received reference symbol. The synchronization includes a cross correlation of at least one of two repetition patterns within a cross correlation window having a predetermined length. In this manner, the performance and the accuracy of a cross correlation peak detection can be enhanced for improved synchronization.
