The Communications Satelite is a small-size satellite launched into HOM's orbit in Mission 1. The larger version of the satellite is the Large Comms Satellite.


  • It may possibly be modeled after NASA's Syncom satellite, but it has an antenna dish instead of an engine.
  • Many players prefer to delete the Communications Satellite from their sandboxes as it can be a collision hazard for any spacecraft exiting HOM orbit.
  • It is the first payload, aside from the Sports Car, which when released, is useless.
  • The spelling is wrong, in American English, but usually accepted in the UK (where Andy Barry lives) and Europe.
