Only relay antennas can develop a connection between satellites. It is hard to tell from the image which satellites have relay antennas.

However, the important thing is the power of the antenna. Each type of antenna has a power rating in the description. The Tracking Station antennas have a huge amount of power.

To calculate the maximum connection range between two antennas: Square root ( power of antenna 1 * power of antenna 2)

If your two satellites are farther apart than the maximum range from the above calculation, then there will be no connection.

What could be the problem?

My guess:  craft is using the pitfull built in antenna, either because no antenna was added or because it is retracted.

That assuming that the craft dispayed as relay actualy have operational relay antennas.
