Packet-switching broadcast radio networks are receiving considerable attention as a feasible solution for applications involving fast network deployment requirements, inaccessible physical environments, and mobile communication devices. Such networks also offer economic alternatives to traditional multiplexing schemes for local distribution. Most of the published papers relating to packet-switching broadcast radio networks address the case in which all communication devices are within an effective transmission range of the destination receiver, thus forming a single-hop network in which no packet routing is involved. In this paper, we address multihop networks. The problems encountered in packet transportation are identified and strategies to resolve these are proposed.
