—In this paper, macro-diversity (MaD) system with macro-diversity switch-and-stay combining (SSC) receiver and two dual input micro-diversity (MiD) maximal-ratio-combing (MRC) structures is considered. Received signal is under the influence of kappa-mu (k-µ) multipath fading and correlated Gamma long term fading resulting in the system performance degradation. Cumulative density function (CDF) at the output of SSC MaD receiver is obtained and used for the evaluation of the outage probability (OP) of the proposed system. The influence of k-µ multipath fading severity parameter, line-of-sight (LoS) component, Gamma shadowing severity parameter and shadowing correlation parameter on OP of MaD SSC system are examined and discussed.
