What is half duplex communication

Half-duplex communication means that data communication in both directions on a single carrier, but not at the same time. 

In other words, half-duplex communication allows two-way communication with the help of the same radio channel for both transmission and reception.

The user can either transmit information or receive information at the given time. 

Some of the features of such a system are "push-to-talk" and "release-to-listen".

An advantage that Half-Duplex would have is the single track or single lane is cheaper than the double track or double lane.
