Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) amplifies and forward based protocols have been investigated previously by various researchers. However, the gap is still there to investigate the performance of these protocols using inter-relay communication in order to improve the diversity order at destination over Rician fading channel. Therefore, this paper is to propose TDMA based amplify and forward three time slot protocol with inter-relay communication over Rican fading channel. The proposed protocol is also investigated for various relay locations in order to optimize the best relay locations in terms of less Bit Error Rate (BER).
