The theoretical performance of MMSE linear microdi-versity combining in Rayleigh fading, additive interference channels has already been derived exactly in the literature. In the macrodiversity case the fundamental difference is that any given source may well have different average received powers at the different antennas. This makes an exact analysis more difficult and hence for the macrodiversity case we derive a bound on the mean BER and a semi-analytic upper bound on outage probabilities. Hence we provide bounds on the performance of MMSE linear mi-crodiversity combining in Rayleigh fading with additive noise and any number of interferers with arbitrary powers.
