CubeCell HTCC-AB01 Beginner

Hello,

Is there someone who could help me to understand what I am doing wrong…
With below very simple sketch (with correct OTAA parameters), I apparently can connect to a gateway but the arduino terminal keep saying "“JOIN FAILED! Sleeping for 30 seconds”

Thank you

#include "LoRaWanMinimal_APP.h"
#include "Arduino.h"


//Set these OTAA parameters to match your app/node in TTN
static uint8_t devEui[] = { 0x70, 0xB3, 0xD5, 0x7E, 0xD0, 0x04, 0xB1, 0x15 };
static uint8_t appEui[] = { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 };

uint16_t userChannelsMask[6]={ 0x00FF,0x0000,0x0000,0x0000,0x0000,0x0000 };

static uint8_t counter=0;

      //also go and start doing other things and try again later

      lowPowerSleep(30000);
    } else {

      break;
    }
  }

  counter++;

  //You might be collecting data or doing something more interesting instead.
  lowPowerSleep(15000);  

  //Now send the data. The parameters are "data size, data pointer, port, request ack"
  Serial.printf("\nSending packet with counter=%d\n", counter);
  //Here we send confirmed packed (ACK requested) only for the first five (remember there is a fair use policy)
  bool requestack=counter<50?true:false;
  if (LoRaWAN.send(1, &counter, 1, requestack)) {

}

Its all ok for me Join is accepted!

Where is the problem?

Thank you Ernst. maybe I did not explain correctly. On Console Join is accepted, but it looks like that the device never receive this confirmation. Could it be that the device cannot hear the feedback because of a too low RF signal power, or a not enough sensitve receiver?
Thank you

update the appEui[] to a value other then 00 … you can generate this value in TTN and copy it to your code and it’ll work…
cheers,

Try a delay immediately after LoRaWAN.joinOTAA
