The performance of the dual-hop semi-blind amplify-and-forward relay channel, where the intermediate relay node is selected depending on the instantaneous and partial channel knowledge, is investigated. Using closed-form expressions for the cumulative distribution function of the end-to-end signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), outage probability, SNR moments and average bit error rate are derived.
