Abstract: Performance of a wireless link is evaluated with turbo coding in the presence of Rayleigh fading with single transmitting antenna and multiple receiving antenna. QAM modulator is considered with maximum likelihood decoding. Performance results show that there is a significant improvement in required signal to noise ratio (SNR) to achieve a given BER. It is found that the system attains a coding gain of 14.5 dB and 13 dB corresponding to two receiving antenna and four receiving antennas respectively over the corresponding uncoded system. Further, there is an improvement in SNR of 6.5 dB for four receiving antennas over two receiving antennas for the turbo coded system.
