In this letter, we analyze the error performance of a code combining based cooperative diversity protocol. For coded transmission schemes, code-combining can obtain a near optimal low rate code by combining repeated codewords. An analytical method for evaluating the performances of such scheme is presented. We develop a closed form expression for pairwise error probability and tight upper bounds for bit error rate (BER) and frame error rate (FER) under Rayleigh fading environment. The analytical upper bounds are verified with simulation results.
