In this paper, we study the uplink of a cellular network where reservation random access schemes such as reservation slotted ALOHA and reservation slotted nonpersistent ISMA are used for multiple access. When channel state information is not available to users when they contend for channel access, we find that capture effect inherent in wireless communications can exploit the channel variations and reserve users with favorable channels for data transmission. We investigate two channel models where in the first model, channel variations come from time-varying Nakagami-m fading and in the second model, mobile users have both time-varying fading and path loss.
