A simple closed-form approximation for the outage capacity of Transmit Antenna Selection/Maximal-Ratio Combining (TAS/MRC) systems over independent and identically distributed (i.i.d) Nakagami-m fading channels is derived while the fading index is a positive integer. When the Nakagami-m fading index is not an integer, the approximate outage capacity is derived as a single infinite series of Gamma function. Computer simulations verify the accuracy of the approximate results.
