A method for computing the average bit-error probability of binary differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) and frequency shift-keying (FSK) signals transmitted over Nakagami asymptotically slow fading channels with postdetection diversity reception is presented to extend previously published results. The previously published results apply only for maximum ratio combining, i.e., with predetection combining, where phase coherency is necessary. The results for postdetection combining are derived with the explicit expressions for the most practical cases of independent channels and particular cases of correlated channels
