Bit error rate, Wireless communication channel, Fading.

In wireless channels, fading has been viewed as a problem that must be combated in order to achieve reliable and effective information transfer. In this research, combining technique was applied to combating fading. The theory behind the chosen diversity combining technique, as well as appropriate algorithm to evaluating the system performance, is also presented. An application program was developed using MATLAB to model the communication system and the accompanying faded signal. Statistical analyses were performed on derived data to measure the performance improvement of the technique.
