Product description

The Communotron Ground HG-48 is an adapted version of Ionic Symphonic Protonic Electronics most popular space-based antenna. Designed to boost the signal of any ground-based communication devices to interplanetary ranges.

Not designed to pirate movie channels from nearby satellites. Needs a deployed central station to operate.

With a control station and a power unit, the antenna acts as a signal booster to transmit deployed science.

Note that this antenna is not mandatory, the science is transmitted by the control station's antenna which is a 500k class antenna, capable of being reached from the surface of the Mun even with a level 1 tracking station. Also, vessels with a probe core and a relay antenna can relay the control station's signal.
