In this letter, we present a comprehensive performance analysis of orthogonal space-time block codes (STBCs) with transmit antenna selection under uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels. Two best transmit antennas that maximize the instantaneous received signal-to-noise (SNR) are selected. Using the well-known moment generating function-based analysis approach, we derive the exact average symbol error rate (SER) for M-ary signals. Furthermore, we provide tight upper bounds on the SER for any number of transmit antennas and receive antennas. The tightness is verified by simulation results. It is shown that the diversity order, with antenna selection, is maintained as that of the full complexity systems
