Two detection schemes are considered for the fading channel with co-channel interference. Both schemes exploit the synergy of diversity and coding with maximum-ratio combining and perfect channel state information. The first one — conventional receiver — reduces the error floor by the use of diversity and coding. The second — multi-user receiver — eliminates the error floor by exploiting the structure of the interfering signal which is no more treated as an unknown source of disturbance [6]. Performance results include bit error probability bounds and simulation results for both schemes envisaged.
