A novel method to estimate block error rates (BLER) in the Rayleigh frequency-nonselective fading channel is proposed. The suggested model is based on a finite state Markov chain. The general analytical results are specialized to the case of differential phase shift keying (DPSK) with coherent detection and to the case of Jakes' fading spectrum. The validity of the proposed model is confirmed by extensive simulation results.
