The use of directional antennas in multihop packet radio networks using slotted ALOHA access is considered. Tractable approximations to the network performance in terms of expected forward progress are derived. Results show that packet collisions can be strongly reduced already with moderate gain antennas to allow for a substantial increase in network performance.
