Abstract: The performance in terms of Bit Error Rate and Frame Error Rate for a turbo-coded system in Nakagami frequency-nonselective (flat) fading multipaths channels are presented. An efficient method for generating Nakagami- m fading samples is proposed. Through the parameter m, the Nakagami distribution can model signal fading conditions that range from severe to moderate. The primary justification for the use of the Nakagami-m is its good fit to empirical fading data. By simulations, we show that Turbo-Code provide gain of tens of decidels over uncoded transmission in presence of Nakagami fading.
