1. A method for joint wireless transmission, comprising:
at a primary wireless communication device, generating a first coordination signal at least partially based on a location of a first secondary wireless communication device, the first coordination signal for coordinating joint transmission of a wireless communication signal by at least the primary wireless communication device and the first secondary wireless communication device;
transmitting the first coordination signal from the primary wireless communication device to the first secondary wireless communication device;
transmitting a first portion of the wireless communication signal from the primary wireless communication device to a wireless base station that is remote from each of the primary wireless communication device and the first secondary wireless communication device; and
at the primary wireless communication device:
determining one or more parameters associated with a second portion of the wireless communication signal based at least partially on the location of the first secondary wireless communication device, the second portion of the wireless communication signal being for transmission from the first secondary wireless communication device to the wireless base station, and
generating the first coordination signal such that the first coordination signal specifies the one or more parameters associated with the second portion of the wireless communication signal.
