Abstract : The error probability characteristics for F-out-of-A communication with D-fold diversity are derived and plotted for several values of F and A and for D = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, in a range of character error probabilities P(e) from 0.1 to 0.00001. The optimum order of diversity for a limited total available received signal energy is found to correspond to an energy-to-noise ratio of about 5 dB per signaling element. A comparison with orthogonal multiple alternative signaling is made, and requirements on time and frequency separations and their extents are discussed. (Author)
