This letter presents the outage probability of the Reed Solomon (RS) coded cooperation scheme. In this scheme, the codeword of the Users are partitioned into two frames and transmitted through two independent fading channels. The first frame is transmitted directly to the base station. The second frame is transmitted via a partner to the base station. The derived outage expressions confirm that full diversity is achieved by the RS coded cooperation scheme. The analytical outage probability comparisons under various inter-user and uplink channel conditions shed light on the relative virtues of the RS coded cooperation scheme as compared to the RCPC coded cooperation scheme with around 1.5 to 2.5dB gains.
