Recently, the statistical properties of the equivalent channel representation of a multiple-input-multiple output (MIMO) system employing rate one quasi-orthogonal space-time block codes (QSTBC) for nT = 2", n > 2 transmit antennas was characterized. It was shown, that these QSTBC were capable of achieving a significant fraction of the outage mutual information of a MIMO system. In this letter, based on the Minkowski's determinant inequality and the Meijer's G-function we derive an upper bound for the fraction of outage probability achieved with QSTBC for the general case of nT = 2n,n > 2 transmit antennas. Simulations results show that this bound gets tight for all signal-to-noise-ratios (SNR) values by increasing the number of receive antennas.
