This letter addresses the performance analysis of dual diversity reception systems in correlated lognormal fading channels with not-necessarily-identical parameters. More specifically, novel results on the probability density function (PDF) and the ergodic capacity of dual-branch maximal ratio combining (MRC) and equal gain combining (EGC) diversity receivers are presented. The proposed expressions find application in cost-sensitive diversity receiver implementations and handover designs.
