As an important performance measure, in this paper the outage probability of dual- and triple-branch selection combining (SC) diversity system is compared. The analyzed system works over correlated Weibull fading channels in the presence of cochannel interference (CCI) where the output signal choice is done using desired signal algorithm. Results are graphically presented showing the influence of number of diversity branches, correlation coefficient and ratio of average powers of desired and interference signal.
