Some more fun today with the LoRa board.
There is a set of experiments to do in order to get acquainted with how the whole thing works.
One of the experiments is named “Environmental Sensing”.
So, I picked the right sensors, connected them to the board, loaded the sketch from the demos, added my keys to the keys.h file and I was good to go.
But that was a bit too hairy in terms of cables going all around, so, I decided to tidy all that up.
Enter the glue gun. Putting a tad of hot glue behind the components, and using a L metal shape I had laying around for the antenna, I set all the items on a wooden MDF rectangle. It now looks like this:
The readings do work.
They can’t be transmitted still (no coverage here). Tomorrow I am travelling to an area where coverage is great, so this will maybe help me close the loop.
