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.

Currently[outdated], it has "PhysicsSignificance = 1", making it a zero drag and massless part.

Technical

Extended Communotron 16 on a Command Pod Mk1

The Communotron 16 has a data rate of 0.8 Mits/s and a data cost of 10 e/Mit. While by far the slowest transmitting device, it also uses the least amount of electricity and is the first one the player gets their hands on. It's small and can be placed almost anywhere.

Description

The Communotron 16 is a versatile and lightweight antenna, suitable for moderate-range communication, long-range backup communication, eavesdropping on secret government operations.
