1. A communications device for use in a wireless communications system comprising an infrastructure equipment and the communications device, the communications device comprising:
circuitry configured to
transmit an uplink channel to the infrastructure equipment in a plurality of allocated subcarriers;
receive modulated symbols mapped to one of a plurality of modulated symbol sets;
repeat each of the received modulated symbols within each of the plurality of modulated symbol sets; and
carry out a precoder function on the repeated modulation symbols, the precoder function comprising multiplying each of the repeated modulation symbols by an element of a precoder vector to produce precoded symbols.
