In modern broadband wireless access systems such as mobile worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) and others, repetition coding is recommended for the lowest modulation level, in addition to the mandatory concatenated Reed-Solomon and convolutional code data coding, to protect vital control information from deep fades. This paper considers repetition coding as a time-diversity technique using maximum ratio combining (MRC) and proposes techniques to define and to calculate the repetition coding gain Gr and its effect on bit error rate (BER) under the two fading conditions: correlated lognormal shadowing and composite Rayleigh-lognormal fading also known as Suzuki fading. A variable-rate, variable-power 10-state finite-state Markov channel (FSMC) model is proposed for the implementation of the adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) scheme in mobile WiMAX to maximize its spectral efficiency under constant power constraints in the two fading mechanisms. Apart from the proposed FSMC model, the paper also presents two other significant contributions: one is an innovative technique for accurate matching of moment generating functions, necessary for the estimation of the probability density function of the combiner's output signal-to-noise ratio, and the other is efficient and fast expressions using Gauss-Hermite quadrature approximation for the calculation of BER of QPSK signal using MRC diversity reception.
