The effect of cochannel interference on the performance of digital mobile radio systems in a Rayleigh fading environment is studied. The average bit error rate (BER) of an antenna array system with an optimum combining scheme that maximizes the output signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) is analyzed. BER expressions which are easy to evaluate numerically are derived for coherent binary phase shift keying (BPSK) schemes in an environment with cochannel interference and noise.
