An analysis of the performance of a local/mobile radio communications system utilizing the slotted ALOHA multiple random access protocol is presented in this paper. The probability of correct packet capture is evaluated for a local/mobile packet radio system using ideal coherent binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) modulation. Both the near/far effect and the effect of Rayleigh fading on the probability of correct packet capture are taken into account, but the effect of thermal noise is neglected since the interference due to competing packets is dominant in practical systems. The probability of correct packet reception is evaluated for a system using spatial diversity. In addition, the effect on system performance of either convolutional coding with hard decision Viterbi decoding or binary linear block coding with hard decision decoding is evaluated. The pseudo-Bayesian algorithm that has been developed to stabilize a packet system based on the slotted ALOHA protocol at maximum channel throughput is found to be adaptable to the local/mobile operating environment. For the slotted ALOHA system considered in this paper, it is possible to obtain channel throughputs as high as 0.66 provided a spatial diversity of around ten can be implemented.
