In this letter, we propose an adaptive sensing/transmission scheduling policy in which the secondary user senses the spectrum when its channel condition is poor for transmission. The adaptive sensing/transmission scheduling is modeled as a Markov process and a near-optimal algorithm is proposed to determine the sensing/transmission policy. Simulation results verify our analysis and demonstrate the superiority of the proposed algorithm.
