Analytic expressions have been derived for the probability density functions of the total signal-to-interference ratio when considering mixed-type interference sources in the reverse link of a DS/CDMA packet radio system with Rayleigh fading. Four different scenarios were studied, and the corresponding expressions are presented for each situation. The users are divided into two groups: those that apply a closed-loop power control and those that only use an open-loop power control. By making use of these expressions, the mean block error probability is derived as a function of the number of total interfering users in each group.
