The transmission over the Gaussian mixture noise channel with perfect channel state information at the receiver side is considered. Lower and upper bounds on the achievable pairwise error probability (PEP) are derived for finite and infinite codeword lengths. It is shown that diversity codes, i.e., unitary transforms, can be applied to achieve a diversity gain. A large class of diversity codes is determined for which—if the codeword length is increased—the PEP between any two codewords approaches either zero or the lower bound on the PEP.
