We propose the use of an invertible code in cooperative multi-hop relaying networks. The effect of the code on the probability that an information block is undelivered to the destination is analyzed at the link level with a simple network topology. Numerical results indicate that significant improvement is feasible by an incorporation of an invertible code, since an information block can be reproduced by correcting channel errors in the received blocks at a relaying node.
