The Communotron 16 is a deployable antenna item for the science transfer system. Like the Communotron 88-88, the Communotron 16 can be deployed and retracted through action groups or manually.

Description

The Communotron 16 is a versatile and lightweight antenna, suitable for moderate-range communication, or long-range backup communication.

Ionic Protonic Electronics

Technical

The Communotron 16 has a data rate of 5Mits/s and a data cost of 5. It's the most inefficient transmitting device, but the first one the player gets his hands on. It's small, weights almost nothing and can be placed almost anywhere without having to worry about list on the vessel.
