ALOHA with Queue Sharing (ALOHA-QS)  maintains most of the simplicity of ALOHA  with priority acknowledgments  (ACK) and attains the high throughput of transmission scheduling methods that  require  clock synchronization.  Channel access with ALOHA-QS  consists of a sequence of queue cycles, with each cycle having one or multiple  collision-free transmissions by nodes that have joined the transmission queue and  a  single request turn to join the queue.    The signaling  of ALOHA-QS  entails adding to  packet headers the size of the shared queue, the position of the sending node in the  queue,  a bit indicating the end of transmissions by the transmitting node, and a bit stating whether or not a new node joined the queue successfully.    The throughput of ALOHA-QS is compared with the throughput of  TDMA with a fixed transmission schedule, ALOHA with priority ACK's,  and CSMA with priority ACK's analytically and by simulation.
