The average symbol error probability (SEP) performance of arbitrary rectangular quadrature amplitude modulation in the context of arbitrarily ordered transmit antenna selection and receive maximal ratio combining diversity system is analysed. The channel gains are assumed to follow Nakagami-m fading distribution with in general arbitrary fading parameters. Exact expressions for the average SEP performance are derived for the general case of unequal in-phase and quadrature decision distances as well as distinct in-phase and quadrature modulation orders. The results generalise many previous case studies, and can be used to investigate the impact of various diversity-combining schemes and different modulation and channel parameters on the system average SEP performance.
