The '''Communotron 88-88''' is a deployable [[antenna]], and is the antenna with the smallest transmission interval and highest total throughput. <!-- Previous edit described this part as having the lowest total throughput, an understandable error as in-game part description specs also indicate this. In-game part description specs for total throughput are not currently being calculated correctly, however, as they currently display the product of packet size and packet interval. True throughput rates (the rates the player will actually experience when playing the game) are the product of packet size and packet *frequency* (frequency being the inverse of interval).--> The Communotron 88-88 is deployed during [[science]] data transmission and retracted when transmission is complete. It has no drag due to being a [[physicsless part]]{{Check version||1.0.2}}.

  1. 1.0 1.1 The mass and drag are from the part config, but the game handles it massless/dragless.

The Communotron 88-88 is a deployable antenna, and is the antenna with the smallest transmission interval and highest total throughput. The Communotron 88-88 is deployed during science data transmission and retracted when transmission is complete. It has no drag due to being a physicsless part[outdated].

Product description

The Communotron 88-88 directional antenna allows for far more reliable communication at longer ranges than previous models. This is thanks in part to its patented parabolic folding design, which our research team maintains was not inspired by an umbrella.
