Determine the transmission speed

Here's an explanation why I get those transmission speed numbers. I send a vessel with all three types of antennas and a atmospheric sensor (the one which used to be a Nose Cone) onto the desert surface. There I stared the atmospheric analysis, which gives 200Mits of Data. Then I send this data using one of the antennas. By remembering the timestamp I was able to find the section in the logfile and could calculate a delta-time. -- Crown (talk) 10:04, 19 October 2013‎ (UTC)

It appears, that it is the double of the inverse of the packet interval given in the part configs. As each packet has a size of 2 Mits and the interval is for example 0.4 seconds per packet with the Communotron 16 it results in 5 Mits/s (=: 0.4 s/packet = 0.8 s/Mits). Except for the Communotron 88-88 it appears to "match" more or less. Should we use then the values given by the configuration files? — xZise [talk] 10:22, 6 December 2013 (CST)
