No signal?

Question

Hi there again,

I know that I have posted a similar question to this one just a few days ago (about probes and signal), but now I have another problem, so I am going to use the forums again (sorry, still a big KSP newbie). So, I have a probe that has no signal:

It has no signal since there is Minmus in the way between it and Kerbin. But...

Why cant it just use the vessel next to it which clearly has a very good connection to Kerbin as a relay to get connected? Is that not possible?

 

As always, thanks for any help,

Anonymmm

Does the other vessel have any relay antennas fitted and deployed? If not it's a no go I'm afraid.

It has, two fully functioning and deployed Communatron DTS-M1 antennas.

 

PS: Anybody knows how to make "part links" (so the name of the part shines bright blue in the text and can be clicked on)? Thx...

It's not the probe that's the problem here. If the vessel you're trying to use as a relay doesn't have any relay antennae on it (i.e. an HG-5, RA-2, RA-15, or RA-100), it can't be used as a relay.

Your communatron does nothing in terms of relaying signal, it is made only to transmit something, not used as a relay!

Oh... had no idea there were relay antennas and normal antennas. Well... thanks! At least now I know!

Btw I completed the probe contract anyway, just had to be a bit more creative in order to get it into the right orbit.... :) 

EDIT: Lol just realised that that means that basicly my entire satelite network doesnt actually work :D

Well...
