The intersymbol interference (ISI) produced by multipath channel delay spread can be approximated as Gaussian noise. The equivalent average signal-to-noise power ratio (SNR) is defined. Very simple expressions for average bit error rate (BER) due to delay spread are derived for linear quaternary DPSK (QDPSK) transmission with differential detection over mobile radio Rayleigh fading channels.
