Comm Dish Core

Item

Description It's said that the most complex tasks of hardware should be offloaded to software, but that message doesn't seem to have gotten through to whoever designed this. Thankfully, those same designers saw fit to include an instruction manual.

This particular hardware is intended as the core for an old-fashioned "satellite dish" serving as the backbone for a comm network. It doesn't go into details on how it handles all the routing and encryption, but does describe how to connect and interface it with the actual dish.
Type Usable (not consumed)
Requires 1 Energy
Use (on first use)
You look over the instructions, finding them extremely thorough, if rather technical.

You'll have to find some comm dish segments to follow these directions. They're valuable enough that they're usually recycled, so it's hard to say where you should start searching.

You've learned a new device recipe: Comm Dish - Construct a comm dish for your gang from forty Dish Segments, four Polysteel Supports, four Magnetic Coils, a Buffered PDA running Signal Finder, and a Comm Dish Core (10 Energy)

You've learned a new device recipe: Personal Comm Dish - Construct it from four Dish Segments, a Magnetic Coil, a Buffered PDA running Signal Finder, and a Comm Dish Core (5 Energy)

(afterwards, first use with collapsed integrator in inventory?)

Hmmmm… on a second reading, it looks like this could become the heart for a piece of hardware to support that collapsed integrator.

You've learned a new device recipe: Handheld Core - Build hardware from a Expanded Handheld, a Comm Dish Core, a Magnetic Coil, and eight Signal Buffers around a Collapsed Integrator
