The composite Rayleigh-lognormal distribution is mathematically intractable for the analytical evaluation of such a communication system performance metric as bit error rate. The composite K distribution closely approximates the Rayleigh-lognormal and is potentially useful for analytical manipulations. In this contribution we derive the bit error rates of differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) and minimum shift keying (MSK), in manageable closed forms, for the K distribution model of multipath fading and shadow fading, and show, numerically, the close agreement between these results and those based on the Rayleigh-lognormal distribution.
