In this letter, new results on the BER performance of multitone DS-CDMA systems for transmissions over Nakagami-m fading channels with exponentially decaying multipath intensity profile are presented. The results show that, in viewpoint of the BER performance, there is a critical relation between the number of resolvable paths and the effect of the rate of average power decay.
