In this study, joint single transmit and receive antenna selection systems are examined for independent but non-identically distributed flat Nakagami-m fading channels. Exact bit/symbol error rate expressions are derived for binary and M-ary signals by using the conventional probability density function-based analysis method and the moment generating function based analysis method for arbitrary and integer values of the fading parameters, respectively. Upper bounds are obtained in order to show that the investigated systems achieve full diversity order at high SNRs. Also, outage probability analysis has been carried out for examining system capacity. Theoretical results are validated by Monte Carlo simulations.
