Kowgan Posted June 23, 2017 Author Share Posted June 23, 2017 (edited) @5thHorseman L1C1 max range is 31.6Mm, while Minmus' orbital altitude is 46.4Mm Therefore, the map is wrong. You would need a Class 2 Antenna over the Level 1 Tracking Station in order to establish direct communication between Minmus and Kerbin. I'll review all these antennae levels for each planet and update the map accordingly. Meanwhile, you can check the KSPedia » CommNet » Ranges page to check the max range for each antenna+tracking station combination, then compare it with the max distance between Kerbin and the target planet/moon. I really miss an in-game label for each antenna (C1, C2, etc.). For what I've seen, you've got to either check the wiki, or check the antenna stats and compare it iwth the KSPedia page to determine that antenna's class.
