This paper considers the detection problem for fading channels in the presence of interference when both the transmitter of interest and the interferers employ practical modulation schemes. It is shown that, for Rayleigh fading, it is possible to obtain symbol error rates that have the same dependence on the received signal-to-noise ratio as when transmission is interference-free. This is achieved using detectors that employ knowledge on the channel and on the modulation schemes of the interference.
