We study behavior of multi-zone MCA (Multi-Channel Access) mobile communication systems with a finite number of channels in each zone. Three queueing schemes for channel requests named holding scheme, ready-nonready scheme, and optimum scheme are investigated. The delay performance of channel requests is studied through computer simulations.
