blind transmission


blind transmission: Transmission without obtaining a receipt, i.e., acknowledgement of reception, from the intended receiving station. Note: Blind transmission may occur or be necessary when security constraints, such as radio silence, are imposed, when technical difficulties with a sender's receiver or receiver's transmitter occur, or when lack of time precludes the delay caused by waiting for receipts.
