The path diversity improvement inherent in direct sequence spread spectrum (DS/SS) signalling under multi-path propagation environments is investigated for mobile/personal radio communications systems that employ DPSK modulation. The bit error rate (BER) performance of post-demodulation selection diversity reception is theoretically analyzed in the presence of noise-only-paths in the time window for diversity combining. Results of laboratory experiments conducted to evaluate the BER performance are also presented. It is shown that the experimental results agree well with the theoretical BER.
