Recently there is a noticeable interest in investigation of the squared norm distribution of complex-valued Gaussian variables that have different variances. A typical example is consideration of the channel state information (CSI) in multi-antenna systems. A similar problem appears in communication systems interfered by Middleton Class A impulsive noise. In this paper we develop exact expressions for the squared norm distribution in the time and frequency domains in OFDM systems interfered by Class A impulsive noise. Accurate approximation by the chi-square distribution based on equating the first two moments has been also derived.
