In this letter, we derive a very accurate closed-form approximate formula for the average achievable rate of stacked orthogonal space-time block code (OSTBC) in Rayleigh fading channels. Some simulations are performed to demonstrate that the derived formula shows better agreement with Monte-Carlo simulation results than the existing closed-form approximate expressions.
