LoRa Communications

Postby fryers » Wed Feb 12, 2020 4:40 pm

All,

Is anyone using LoRa communications for rocket telemetry?

The LoRa mini board listed in the link below looks like it would be useful for telemetry communications and seems pretty cheap.

Cheers.

Where’s Stewart when you need him.

Anyway, big question is it a compliant transmitter, cause you can get yourself into a lot of bother with regulators. In had with that would be what frequency, power, licensing etc.

Sorry, I am only a dilettante when it comes to LoRa, so I haven't joined in the conversation :)

I've been playing with some LoRa Arduino shields from Jaycar. My intention is to use them for telemetry, but I haven't taken it very far yet - too many other projects!

The Featherweight GPS Tracker uses LoRa.

Featherweight's GPS tracker uses LoRa for its telemetry downlink.
