Simple and accurate expressions for the performance of an L branch equal gain combining receiver in independent Hoyt fading channels are presented. Using an approximate but highly accurate probability density function of the sum of Hoyt random variables, expressions for the average bit error rate for binary, coherent and noncoherent modulations have been obtained. The effect of the number of diversity branches on the normalized average output SNR is examined. The results have been verified against available results.
