We consider dynamic assignment of a single channel in a linear cellular array, and derive closed‐form expressions for the blocking probability of handover calls and new calls in terms of the array size and traffic load assuming a Markov traffic model. Handover and new call blocking performance in the limit of large arrays and extreme traffic loads is also determined.
