Previous researches on ad-hoc networks did not consider the dynamic rate adaptation for wireless multicast. Instead, they statically use the lowest data rate for multicast transmission. The MAC protocol proposed in this paper utilizes the OFDMA mechanism, so that all members can report their rate preference at one time. As a result, the best rate for each member is dynamically selected.
