An analytical approach is developed for evaluating the expected range increase and variations in coverage range, while using an M-element adaptive antenna array at the base station (BS). The analysis is based on the match filter bound an the bit error rate probability for a frequency non-selective Rayleigh fading channel. Results for a ten element uniform linear array (ULA) indicate the expected range increase over a BS with only a single antenna can be nearly doubled. A 1.6 to 1.7 increase is also likely with a five-element array
