In this paper an approach to the performance analysis of a dual-branch switched-and-stay combining (SSC) diversity receiver, operating over interference-limited Ricean correlated fading environment, is presented. Infinite series expressions are obtained for the output signal-to-interference ratio's (SIR) probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF). Using these new formulae, the outage probability (OP) and the average symbol error probability (ASEP) for modulation schemes such as noncoherent frequency-shift keying (NCFSK) and binary differentially phase-shift keying (BDPSK) are efficiently evaluated. Numerical results, presented into this paper, are graphically presented and analyzed, in order to point out the effects of fading severity and the level of correlation on the system performances.
