ComSat Minmus II (Archive) 

^^ Craft Information - Operational Orbit ^^

Our tried-and-true 3-satellite communications network is coming to Minmus. Successful use of the constellation around both Kerbin and Mun have deterred engineers from implementing more complex solutions, although they certainly thought about them. The satellite will carry two dishes and one antenna. The antenna will serve for the local omni network while the dishes allow for direct comms to Mun and indirect comms to Kerbin, routed through the IP ComSats. A lofty 1,150km orbit will provide for a very stable constellation once all satellites are in place.

After 3 days of travel the satellite has now been placed near optimal distance from ComSats 3 and 1, once again completing a triangle of constant line of sight communication links that connects all craft in orbit to KSC back on Kerbin.
