Selection and scanning diversity effects on the error rate performance of digital fm with limiter discriminator detection in a fast Rayleigh fading signal environment are theoretically analyzed. A simplified method of deriving the conditional error rate, including the effect of random fm noise, is proposed for evaluating the average error rate with diversity. The method is based on the fact that the average error rate for no diversity and the conditional error rate are related to the Laplace transform in the Rayleigh fading signal environment. Diversity effects are presented in a closed form expression for both symmetrical and asymmetrical fading power spectra.
