The statistics of photocounts of phase-keyed optical signal with normal Markovian noise is studied. Generating function of photo-counts of additive radiation field is found. Numerical characteristics of photocount distribution and the probability of wrong detection decision are obtained. The error probability is shown increase with decreasing spectral profile width of the noise line.
