The Communotron DTS-M1 is a deployable antenna, it is deployed during science data transmission and retracted when transmission is complete.

It is the first unlocked medium sized antenna.

The Communotron DTS-M1 also has a "Blink Lights" option in the VAB/SPH, but nobody is actually sure what light this blinks if it blinks any lights.
