The reliability in accurately transmitting channel assignments in a communications satellite time domain multiple access system, from a reference communications controller to several subsidiary communications controllers, is increased by repeating the sequential transmission of those assignments several times within each superframe. A complete, contiguous set of assignments need not be received in any one frame group, there being four chances for receipt in a superframe of several frame groups.
