Abstract : A covert line of sight time division multiple access communications system comprised of a plurality of geographically separated transceivers consisting of identical hardware and capable of operating either as a master station or a slave station, and when desirable as a repeater station. The system operates with a non-committed master station operating within a predetermined power circle of operation whereby multiple slave stations and/or repeaters communicate with each other by way of the master station in a one half duplex mode at a single frequency in the millimeter wave frequency range between 54 and 58 GHz.
