Abstract

We analyze the average symbol error rate (SER) of M-PSK and M-QAM modulations with transmit antenna selection diversity (SD) and receive generalized selection combining (GSC) in Rayleigh fading channels. SER formulas are derived in closed form, and numerical results show that transmit SD and receive GSC are flexible to tradeoff performance for complexity.
