Spread the love

I want to get two range world records:
1. Longest connection to a TTN gateway
2. Longest Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) ground to ground connection
Come with me on an interesting journey…

    Look Andreas got here very quit this week. Boy Man what a holiday you are having mate. I cannot go out, did my back in, so rest. I have just got my new project here too. Need a Node-red, grafana, and Web server. I have to remember your Pi4 setup you last did to build a power monitoring system.

    I'm trying now to do some long range lora network, but I'm curious, how obstacles like tips of trees will affect signal.
    I'm planing to reach 20km with 5 lora "stations" with 1/4 ground plane antennas, but always something will be blocking LOS slightly.
    Will it fail?

    How does this work? I want to buy something i can use for when internet and electricity falls out. You have tips?
