Summary: 
Frequency channel allocation according to the interference among links is important in autonomous distributed control wireless base station networks from the viewpoint of efficient frequency utilization. It is generally difficult to estimate the interference imposed on other links in a distributed control scheme. This paper proposes a novel frequency channel allocation scheme employing distributed control utilizing broadcast signals to estimate the intensities and frequencies of the interference to other links. The frequency channel, which can be allocated to a link from the viewpoint of the degree of the interference imposed on other links, can be found by receiving broadcast signals. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme efficiently allocates frequency channels to each link to avoid the interference.
