Abstract

An exact analytical technique is presented for computing the average bit error rate (BER) and outage probability of differentially detected PSK in the land mobile satellite channel (LMSC) when L branch maximal ratio combining (MRC) is employed. Following a previous empirical study, the LMSC is modelled as a weighted sum of Rice and Suzuki distributions. Numerical results are provided
