This paper studies the performances of a dual-branch switched-and-stay combining (SSC) diversity receiver, operating over correlated - fading in the presence of cochannel interference (CCI). Very useful, novel, infinite series expressions are obtained for the output signal to interference ratio's (SIR's) probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF). The performance analysis is based on an outage probability (OP) and an average bit error probability (ASEP) criteria. ASEP is efficiently evaluated for modulation schemes such as noncoherent frequency-shift keying (NCFSK) and binary differentially phase-shift keying (BDPSK). The effects of various parameters, such as input SIR unbalance, the level of correlation between received desired signals and interferences, nonlinearity of the environment, and fading severity on systems performances are graphically presented and analyzed.
