The Weibull-gamma (WG) distribution, which is appropriate for modelling fading environments when multipath is superimposed on shadowing, is introduced and studied. For this composite distribution the probability density, cumulative distribution, characteristic functions and the moments are derived in closed form. Furthermore, the average bit error and outage probabilities of a receiver operating over WG fading channels are assessed and compared with the corresponding performances obtained using other composite distributions.
