We provide a BER analysis of the well-known rotation code, which has been applied to various transmission schemes, such as coordinate-interleaved design (CID) for space-time block codes and transmodulation or constellation rearrangement for a cooperative relay system. An upper bound on the BER of the rotation code under a fading channel is derived. It turns out to be much tighter than the existing one, which relies on the Chernoff bound. More specifically, the proposed bound is virtually identical to simulation result when Eb/No is larger than 4 dB.
