We consider the broadcast phase of a spectrally efficient two-phase decode-and-forward protocol which is used by a relay node to establish a bidirectional communication between two nodes. In the first phase the two nodes transmit their message to the relay node which decodes the messages. In the succeeding phase the relay node broadcasts a re-encoded composition of them. We consider imperfect channel knowledge and assume that all nodes merely know that the channel used for the transmission belongs to a set of channels. This is called compound bidirectional broadcast channel. We derive a universal strategy which achieves capacity and show that perfect channel state information (CSI) at the receivers does not lead to an increased capacity region. Otherwise, perfect CSI at the transmitter can advantageously be used to enlarge the capacity region. Finally, we give a game-theoretic interpretation as a game against nature. ©2009 IEEE.
