High Altitude Platforms (HAP) are currently considered as an alternative solution for providing reliable multicast and broadcast services. The major problem limiting the scalability of such systems is Feedback Implosion, a problem arising whenever a large number of users transmit their feedback messages. In the present Letter, a novel scheme is proposed which takes into account rain attenuation being the dominant factor impairing link performance. The proposed scheme is based on the selection… CONTINUE READING
