It is shown that implementing a practical self-stabilizing sliding window protocol requires a bound on the maximum delay or maximum memory of the communication channel involved. This motivates using communication channel models that incorporate a delay or memory bound. For such models, two new ARQ protocols are presented that self-stabilize by using 1 bit of overhead in each transmitted message. The protocols operate like selective repeat ARQ, except that when a fault places them in an incorrect (unsafe) state, the additional bit in the protocol messages allows automatic recovery. Following a transient fault, the bounded delay protocol stabilizes within four round-trip times. The bounded memory protocol stabilizes after sending at most 2(K+n) messages, where K the is maximum number of messages that can be stored in one direction on the channel, and n is the window size of the sender
