A closed-form solution for the bit error probability for an energy detection receiver using On-Off-Keying in a frequency selective multipath fading channel with zero-mean complex-normal distributed fading amplitudes is introduced. Independent and correlated fading are considered. The presented results are valid for for all kinds of frequency selective fading channels, especially ultra wideband channels, where the Gaussian assumption for the decision statistic and the flat fading assumption do not hold.
