The aim of this paper is to obtain communication resource based on the overlay method for the secondary user (SU) in the primary communication environment operating in the Stop-and-Wait Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (SW-HARQ) protocol. Unlike the overlay Cognitive Radio applications in the literature, in this work communication resources have been obtained for the SU in the time period in which the primary user (PU) is active in the channel. Our performance results have shown that a significant amount of sources of communication can be achieved for the SU by evaluating the waiting times in the primary SW HARQ periods, even when the PU is continuously running in the SW HARQ protocol without emptying the channel.
