The authors consider a multi-channel communication system in which a transmitter has access to two channels, but does not know the state of either channel. They model the channel state using an ON/OFF Markovian model, and allow the transmitter to probe one of the channels at predetermined probing intervals to decide over which channel to transmit. For models in which the transmitter must transmit over the probed channel, it has been shown that a myopic policy that probes the channel most likely to be ON is optimal.
