We investigate the performance of maximal ratio combining (MRC) systems operating in a non-Gaussian multipath fading environment. Specifically, we model the fading process by a spherically invariant random process (SIRP), which has many Gaussian-like properties and has been shown to be appropriate for modeling the multipath fading phenomenon in some practical fading environments. Closed-form expressions are derived for the average error probability of coherent binary modulation in the presence of multiple, equal-power non-Gaussian interferers in a non-Gaussian multipath fading environment.
