The performance of switch diversity with binary modulation schemes over the TWDP fading channel is examined. The four types of switch diversity investigated in this study comprise of the switch-and-stay combining, switch-and-examine combining, switch-and-examine combining with post-selection and scan-and-wait combining. The expressions of the average output signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at the receiver and bit-error rate (BER) are derived and presented. The pre-determined SNR thresholds of the switch diversity over the TWDP fading channel are optimised to obtain the minimum BER. Analytical results are validated by simulation.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/100840
