This mod is not known to work with the latest version of Kerbal Space Program. Proceed with caution.
This is a giant, 2.5m stack-mounted relay antenna that provides 1000G (or, if you prefer, 1T) of transmission power (ten times the most powerful stock antenna), useful for playing with modded solar systems that include extremely distant planets.
The mod also includes two smaller 300G antennas suitable for 1.25m stacks.
The design is inspired by the JAXA Large Deployable Antenna.
Retracted, it's a cylindrical component slightly taller than the MPL science lab.

This 300G relay antenna is suitable for deep-space probes.
Even more compact than the JU1, this 300G relay antenna has the added bonus of rover-friendly design.

If you just play with a stock solar system in KSP, you really don't need this antenna (unless you just think it's pretty). It mainly becomes useful if you are running any mods that increase the size of the solar system, in which case the most powerful stock antennas may not reach far enough.
For example, the most powerful stock antenna is 100G, and a level-3 tracking station at KSC is 250G, for a maximum range of 158G meters from Kerbin. The farthest object of interest in the stock solar system is Eeloo, which reaches a maximum distance of 127G meters. Therefore, the stock antennas will reach.
However, some mods boost the size of the solar system considerably larger than 158G meters. Some examples:
Outer Planets attempts to deal with this by tweaking tracking station power, giving it a level-4 upgrade. However, this makes everything extremely over-powered for the inner solar system, without really adding any depth to the gameplay.
What is needed is a single, very powerful relay antenna that can fill that gap.
