Low earth orbit satellite systems for low-speed data communications have been proposed - the so- called "Little LEO" systems. Data transmissions on the uplink consist of short (< 500 ms) bursts of data sent in time slots. Each burst is sent on a frequency which is randomly picked from a bank of available frequencies.
