1. A method for recovery of timing of a communication signal in a transceiver comprising:

  • acquiring a first pilot channel to establish timing tracking of the transceiver;

    monitoring a decoded signal in the transceiver for decoding errors occurring during a first frame;

    determining a number of decoding errors in the first frame of the decoded signal;

    determining whether the number of decoding errors is greater than a predetermined non-zero amount;

    reacquiring the first pilot channel at a start of a second received frame when the number of decoding errors is determined to be greater than the predetermined amount; and

    resetting timing tracking of the transceiver based on the reacquired first pilot channel.
