One in a series of eleven Memoranda detailing the Distributed Adaptive Message Block Network, a proposed digital data communications system based on a distributed network concept. It is a detailed consideration of a possible design for the network's communication links, based on the use of microwave repeater stations. Of several possible link designs examined, the mini-cost microwave appears least expensive. The mini-cost system is designed solely for use in transmitting digital signals within the Distributed Adaptive Message Block Network. Many of its specific facets, however, may be of use in other microwave applications.
