The Communotron 16 is a deployable antenna, and placeholder item for a communication system. Like the Communotron 88-88, the Communotron 16 can be deployed, but not retracted.


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