The invention relates to a receiving method in a digital cellular radio system. The invention further relates to a receiver of the cellular radio network. In computing the signal to noise ratio, a reference signal is utilized which is the convolution of the estimated impulse response of a channel and the predetermined sequence. The signal to noise ratio is obtained as a ratio between the variance of the reference signal and the predetermined sequence received from the channel. The signal to noise ratio is used for weighing the diversity branches of the diversity receiver.
