Performance analysis of a dual-hop semi-blind amplify-and-forward (AF) relay system in mixed Nakagami-m and Rician fading channels, is proposed. We derived the closed-form expression for the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the equivalent end-to-end signal to noise ratio (SNR), based on which the exact outage probability and symbol error probability (SEP) are investigated. The theoretical analysis is validated by Monte Carlo simulation results.
