In response to UltimateNuker's radar save, i felt as though i needed to clarify a few things about how radio dishes work. (it is literally my job) i hope you enjoy this and that someone finds a use for it in a save :)

    @handicraftsman think about photons as electromagnetic waves.

    Not realistic: realistic radio uses electromagnetic waves, while this one uses photons

    these two saves should demonstrate and explain the differences between antennae with parabolic reflectors, and offset antennae with spherical reflectors.

    I see why. That's the reason I give up making a well-shaped curve reflector in TPT.

    @lamyipfu remove them, hit transmit, and you'll see why.

    @ultrabeam123 with what? @kobalt that's because civilian satellite dishes use KA band radio, which is sensitive to water or dust in the air. most other bands are unaffected, but they're all blocked by something, it's just not usually something you'd expect to find in the atmosphere.
