Data Controls: [edit] [purge] (?)

The Icon Block Antenna Antenna can send commands from the attached ship to other ships with Antennas. Any block marked to show on HUD will broadcast its location, but only if there is an antenna on the ship to send the information. Additionally, Antennas will relay any information they receive to friendly antennas within their range. Large grid antennas' range are 50km at maximum power output. Keep in mind while this is true; the maximum range for a small grid Antenna is 5km meaning that vehicles out of range will still lose signal.


Large Block: 1 x 2 x 6
Small Block: 1 x 1 x 2


If set to broadcast, Antennas will transmit its position to everyone in range, regardless of faction. Other factions will see the antenna in Red. Those in the same faction will see it in Green. If the antenna belongs to a neutral faction, it will appear as White. Only the owning faction can transmit commands to it.
