In the APCO 25 implementation of Slotted ALOHA on a trunking control channel, a subscriber unit must synchronize to the outbound control chan- nel prior to sending any transmission on the inbound control channel. In order to maximize control chan- nel throughput, it is critical to correctly obtain syn- chronization so as to not collide with other users. It is also necessary to obtain this synchronization as quickly as possible.
