as you can see, the length of the channel estimate vectors is equal to
the FFT length. However, channel estimates are only calculated for those
bins that are actually occupied. Here's the code:


There's several reasons why the length of channel taps is FFT length
instead of the number of carriers, but one major one is that we shift
the channel taps around according to the coarse frequency offset.
