receiving, at a base station and from user equipment, feedback relating to a transmission slot, wherein there are multiple types of transmission slots;
subsequently determining by the base station a type of transmission slot to which the feedback relates;
determining by the base station which type of transmission slot will be used at a particular time for communication with the user equipment;
determining by the base station at least one communication link parameter in dependence on the type of transmission slot to be used at the particular time and the received feedback, which has been determined to relate to that type of transmission slot; and
performing, by the base station and to the user equipment, a communication at the particular time, at least by using the determined at least one communication link parameter.
