Novel, closed-form expressions for the average Shannon capacity of single-branch receivers, operating over generalized fading channels (Nakagami-m, Rice and Weibull), are derived. As an application, the optimum switching threshold for maximizing the data transmission rate of switched and stay combining receivers is obtained and several numerical results are presented.
