The invention is directed to the reception of high rate radio signals (for example DVB-T signals) while the receiver is moving at a high speed (for example in or with a car). Two or more antennas (12, 16) are closely spaced and arranged behind each other in the direction of motion (v) for receiving the radio signals. A signal is obtained which represents a virtual antenna (26) that is at least temporarily stationary with respect to the environment, despite the movement of the receiver. The receiving signal of the virtual antenna (26) suffers at least less distortions than a signal received by one of the first and second antennas (12, 16). In accordance with the invention the signal which represents the virtual antenna (26) is obtained under the control of a feedback signal (SYNC) of the receiver.
