Postdetection selection diversity reception for Nyquist pulse shaped quadrature differential PSK (QDPSK) signal transmissions is addressed. Average bit error rate (BER) performance with differential and coherent demodulation is analysed for multiple-branch diversity reception under slow multipath Rayleigh fading. Diversity effects in real fading environments are verified by 8 and 16 kbit/s transmissions at 1-45 GHz carrier frequency.
