Utilizing a desirable exponential integral representation of Gaussian probability integral, this letter derives the average bit error rate (ABER) expressions for coherent binary signals that employ a dual branch equal gain combining receiver. Our numerical results reveal that the branch correlations do not affect the ABER significantly provided power correlation coefficient is less than 0.3 in Rayleigh fading.
