Record breaking LoRa distances noted in Europe #LoRa #Radio #IoT #InternetOfThings
Paul at Rent-a-Pilot Aeronautics writes about some record breaking LoRa radio transmission distances noted in Europe. The heat isn’t the only thing setting record numbers (but is it helping radio ranges??)
It is high summer in Europe with record-breaking temperatures (again) today. Also we are seeing record-breaking ranges on LORA trackers.
Below is one of the gps-nodes on the Things network that rides along in a delivery truck. It recorded a transmission 180 km to Middelburg!
Paul was investigating the traffic to his gateway and found a blip from an unusual distance. After following it back to the source, he found this:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
