In a time division multiple access (TDMA) network, channel assignment messages are repeated during several successive frames with a unique sequence number being assigned to each frame. A node which receives any one of the channel assignment messages can decode the sequence number to determine when the channel assignments are to be effective. Receipt of the channel assignment message need not be acknowledged by the receiving node.
