We consider a situation where a transmitter has a batch of packets in its buffers and wants to transmit these in one go and in a semi-reliable fashion to an arbitrary subset of its neighbors over error-prone channels. We design schemes that let the transmitter node control the sleeping activities of the receivers (in order to save energy) and which adapt the sequence in which receivers are addressed to current channel conditions.
