This paper presents a closed form expression of an exact average bit error rate (BER) for a time-division duplex (TDD) transmit diversity scheme employing maximal ratio combining (MRC) over time selective flat Rayleigh fading channels. In the proposed analysis, the feed back delay which degrades the BER performance is taken into account. The results are generally applicable to an arbitrary modulation scheme, as well as an arbitrary number of transmitting branches. To confirm the validity of the proposed analysis, the theoretical results are compared with the simulated ones.
