In multihop wireless networks, hidden terminal problem is common and leads to collision which makes it difficult to provide the required quality for multimedia services or support priority-based services. Existing approaches to this problem either sacrifice throughput noticeably or require additional transceivers and channels. In this paper, we propose a new scheme in which a sender inserts a few dummy bits in the data frame and its intended receiver transmits short busy advertisements over the
