Semi duplex


A method used in radiocommunications were the communication is one way at the time (either listening or talking) and the uplink and downlink operate on two different frequencies. It is a special case of simplex operations.

This method is used e.g. in maritime communications where the ship communicates in semi duplex but the base station at the shore can operate in full duplex.
