In this paper an analysis of selection combining (SC) macrodiversity reception performed in correlated Gamma shadowing environment will be presented. At each microlevel maximal ratio combining (MRC) with correlated branches is observed, for mitigating effects of Nakagami-m short-time fading. First, novel closed form expressions are derived for second order statistical measures, level crossing rate (LCR) and average fade duration (AFD). Capitalizing on these expressions, the influence of correlation at macrolevel (shadowing correlation) will be analysed through their derivatives. Provided analysis could find application in current macrodiversity system design.
