In this paper, a wireless cooperative network, with two sections, operating over multipath mobile-to-mobile interference-limited fading channel is considered. The desired signal and the cochannel interference experience kappa-mu short term fading. The source and destination mobile stations are connected by an amplify-and-forward relay mobile station. The destination station signal-to-interference ratio probability density function and the outage probability closed-form expressions are derived. The closed form approximate expressions for the average fade duration and the level crossing rate are also derived. The influence of the fading channel parameters on these statistical measures are studied. The Monte-Carlo simulations are used to validate the theoretical results.
