Bit error rate (BER) performance of differential 16STAR-QAM in frequency-selective Rician fading channels with diversity reception is theoretically analysed for three different types of delay profiles: double spike, one-sided exponential and Gaussian profiles. The effect of time delay between line-of-sight (LOS) and multipath components is also includei in the analysis, and is shown to degrade the system performance significantly.
