New results for the performance analysis of maximal ratio combining (MRC) using BPSK modulation in spatially correlated Rayleigh fading channels with imperfect channel knowledge are presented in terms of antenna array configuration and parameters of scatterer distributions. The utility of recently developed expressions for bit error probability is enhanced by application of a spatial correlation formulation for arbitrarily spaced antennas and general scatterer distributions. The results of performance analysis give valuable insight into the performance of MRC in realistic Rayleigh fading scenarios with imperfect channel state information for both isotropic and non-isotropic fading scenarios
