In this study, a theoretical foundation is built to evaluate the downlink performance of an MC-CDMA cellular system with site diversity operation with and receive antenna diversity combining. An expression for the theoretical conditional bit error rate (BER) for the given set of channel gains is derived based on Gaussian approximation of the interference components in the composite receive signal. The local average BER is then obtained by averaging the conditional BER over the given set of channel gains using Monte-Carlo numerical method. The outage probability is measured from the numerically obtained cumulative distribution of the local average BER to determine the downlink capacity. Results from theoretical computation are compared to the results from computer simulation and discussed.
