We establish a region of reliably received rates for time-slotted ALOHA systems. We combine concepts from multiple-access channels and broadcast channels to determine a capacity region for a single transmission of a packet (which is long enough to achieve capacity) in an ALOHA system and determine capacity-achieving strategies.
