Wireless relaying is one of the promising solutions to overcome the channel impairments and provide high data rate coverage that appears for beyond 3G mobile communications. In this paper we present an end to end BER performance analysis of dual hop wireless communication systems equipped with multiple decode and forward relays over the Rayleigh fading channel with relay selection. We select the best relay based on end to end channel conditions. We apply orthogonal space time block coding (OSTBC) at source, and also present how the multiple antennas at the source terminal affects the end to end BER performance. This intermediate relay technique will cover long distance where destination is out of reach from source.
