In this paper, we propose a novel method of multi-node frequency synchronization for distributed networks. The proposed method synchronizes carrier frequencies of all nodes in the network and this enables new entry node to synchronize immediately. Moreover, when several groups exist in the network, inter-group synchronization method is proposed. The proposed distributed frequency synchronization method is expected to be very useful for the military operation scenario that new node entry is in a state of flux and group merging and splitting frequently happen.
