  • Patent number: 11206567
    Abstract: A MS transmits, to a BS, uplink data (UD) on a PUSCH, PUSCH being assigned by using a PDCCH. The MS receives on PDCCH, an indication instructing the MS to transmit reception quality information (RQI) without UD on PUSCH, and transmits on PUSCH, to the BS, RQI without UD based on the indication which is received on PDCCH. The indication is specified based on values to which a plurality of fields of information transmitted on PDCCH are set. One of the plurality of fields is a field used for instructing the MS to transmit RQI and another is a field used for indicating a redundancy version. For instructing the MS to transmit RQI without UD on PUSCH, the field used for instructing the MS to transmit RQI is set to a first single predetermined value (SPV) and the field used for indicating the redundancy version is set to a second SPV.
