LoRa TX

dev board Arduino UNO
features LoRa TX SPI

Before starting

Dependancies

Ensure the following requirements are available:

Pre-requisites

Try these simpler examples:

Description

Transmit from a LoRa point with 433 MHz. Use this with receiving from a LoRa point.

Code

Download code
#include <SPI.h>
#include <LoRa.h>

int counter = 0;

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
  while (!Serial) {}

  Serial.println("LoRa Sender");

  if (!LoRa.begin(433E6)) {
    Serial.println("Starting LoRa failed!");
    while (1) {}
  }
}

void loop() {
  Serial.print("Sending packet: ");
  Serial.println(counter);

  LoRa.beginPacket();
  LoRa.print("hello ");
  LoRa.print(counter);
  LoRa.endPacket();

  counter++;

  delay(5000);
}
