The media access control for Wirelesss Modem subscriber devices, such as Cellular Digital Packet Data products, allows re-transmission ofpackets that were previously corrupted when received by the Base site Receiver. The corruption may be due to inter- ference noise, or weak and fading signal conditions. This invention solves the problem of having to invoke the high-level protocol Microprocessor into the task of increasing subscriber RF transmit power for those packets that require re-transmission.
