    The bit-error probability is determined for a binary antipodal diversity system with an adaptive receiver using decision-directed channel estimation. The diversity channels are assumed to be nonselective Rayleigh-fading channels with additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN).
    The analysis is valid for all linear estimators which use a finite-impulse-response (FIR)-type estimation filter.
    Numerical results are presented for a minimum mean-square error (MMSE) filter and a moving average (MA) filter.
