The radio receiver that counters the effects of the multipath fading is known as a rake receiver. Rake receiver used to combine the multipath signals by number of ‘sub receivers’ known as ‘fingers’. Rake receiver uses a multipath diversity principle; it rakes the energy from the multipath propagated signal components. This paper gives the review on implementation of MRC (Maximal Ratio Combining) for the seven fingers rake receiver. It gives the same information to receiver as transmitter, it eliminates the multipath fading and the time offset estimation to seven fingers of rake receiver. In the simulation results we observed that both the signals that is input and output signal resembles the same with the help of MRC.
