This paper suggests and explores amplify, zoom and forward relaying protocol which is based on cooperative transmission over Rayleigh Fading medium. The proposed relying protocol efficiently zooms the received signal at the relay node before forwarding it to the destination. Binary phase shift keying has been used as the underlying modulation scheme. Simulation results show that the proposed protocol outperforms the predefined amplify and forward protocol in terms of signal to noise ratio and bit error rate.
