Despite of many advantages over conventional radio paths, application of the Meteor Burst Path in commercial communication system is so far limited to a few extent because of its low duty rate, which is, less than several percent at best. In order to get through maximum number of data bits during the short interval of each burst, which normally lives a fractions of a second, a sophisticated communication protocol is called for. In this paper, author introduces a communication protocol which can effectively locate and fetch burst signal by sending out periodic detection signal from master station and, with minimal delay, switch over to transmission states so as to put as many data bits through the detected burst as the burst length permits. By analyzing time period required for each transaction steps, the author derives optimal packet length for various bursts which assures to get a message string through in minimum delay. According to the analysis, the author proposes a protocol including a routine which automatically accesses average length of bursts at each environment and automatically adapt length of data packet so as to maximize data throughput under Riven burst conditions.
