In this thesis, the performance of a noncoherent Binary Frequency Shift Keying (BFSK) receiver using Equal Gain Combining (EGC) and Post Detection Selection Combining (PDSC) techniques over a frequency nonselective and slowly Nakagami fading channel is investigated. Analytical and numerical results obtained for EGC are compared to those obtained for first order PDSC (PDSC-1), second order PDSC (PDSC-2) and third order PDSC (PDSC-3).
