We derive the average achievable rate of an adaptive wireless multicast method with antenna diversity in Nakagami fading channels when the rate is selected by the minimum signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the multicast group. Based on the limiting distribution of the minimum SNR, we then derive an approximation to the average achievable rate, which provides accurate values easily in a wide range of channel parameters.
