In this paper an approach to the performance analysis of hybrid MRCS (Selection Maximal Ratio Combining) diversity system operating over Ricean fading channels is presented. HybridMRCS combining method has a simple implementation, where maximal-ratio combined signals are chosen on a selection combining basis. Closed form expressions are provided for standard first and second order statistical measures for the signal at the output of the combiner, i.e. PDF (probability density function), CDF (cumulative distribution function), LCR (level crossing rate). Capitalizing on them standard performance measures like ABEP (Average Bit Error Probability) over some modulation techniques and AFD (Average Fade Duration) are efficiently evaluated and discussed in the function of various system parameters.
