Communication Systems

Question

In one of Scott Manley's videos, I saw him launch a comms statellite and target Mission Control from its antenna. How do I do that? I installed Remotetech because I thought it may be part of that, but when I right-clicked on the antennae there was no otpion to do that. Furthermore, what tips do you have for setting up a communication satellite constelllation, What mods should I use? What the heck does the button with the antenna and the waves coming out of it do/mean?

For RT, there are two kinds of antenna. One omni which automatically connects everything within range, and another kind dish which can select target. You may be seeing the video with dish while you're playing with omni (which doesn't have the option to select target because it doesn't need to).

I found this helpful when I first started playing with RT - it gives optimal altitude and configurations for Kerbin, Mun and Minmus and advice on interplanetary networks.
