This paper investigates the asymptotic error rate behaviour for noncoherent OOK signalling scheme in the presence of Nakagami-m fading. A transcendental equation to compute the optimum threshold level is also derived. Comparison on trends in optimum threshold level and its corresponding ratio of the Mark and Space error probabilities between different channels are presented.
