How do secondary users switch channels in NetSim CR ?
The switching to another channel by the secondary user (CR CPE) occurs when an incumbent comes on. However, the switching will not be done to an adjacent ch...

Why is it preferred to disable TCP in 802.22 simulations ?
In 802.22 simulations, the secondary stops transmissions when the primary comes on. Since the transmissions are stopped the TCP RTO Expires and window drops...

How I delay the sensing of the primary (incumbent) by the secondary?
Let us say there is some delay in sensing the primary. This would mean that there is a delay in sending the UCS. To incorporate this In the file SpectrumMa...
