Performance analysis of switched-and-stay combining (SSC) diversity receiver operating over correlated Nakagami-m fading channels in the presence correlated Nakagami-m distributed co-channel interference (CCI) is presented. Novel infinite series expressions are derived for the output signal to interference ratio's (SIR's) probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF). Capitalizing on them standard performance merasures criterion like outage probabilty (OP) and average bit error probability (ABEP) for modulation schemes such as noncoherent frequency-shift keying (NCFSK) and binary differentially phase-shift keying (BDPSK) are efficiently evaluated. In order to point out the effects of fading severity and the level of correlation on the system performances, numericaly obtained results, are graphically presented and analyzed.
