Hi, I’m sort of intermediate to arduino ide, but have no real lora or network experience, so this is pretty tough to conceptualize. But it seems really close to what I want to accomplish.
Can you help answer a couple of questions?
First off I have a lora32 v3 and plan to get more if this works. I also have a few devices that can sent text messages via lora (these are fully programmable with arduino IDE, so I can control frequency and all other signal perameters).
I got the factorytest firmware running on the lora32 v3, and was able to compile with no errors, so that’s step 1 I guess.
What I’m trying to make, is a mesh network of signal repeaters (or just 1 repeater if i cant mesh). So for example, I want to send a lora transmission with a text string from my lora radio, have a my heltec lora32 v3 recieve it, and re-transmit it so my brother who is just out of range can see it on his handheld lora texting radio. If I get more lora32’s in the future, I’d like them to mesh repeat as well. But tbh, I’d be happy with one repeater for now.
I guess, can you explain what your mesh network does vs what I am hoping to do?
I might be able to look harder and find this out myself… but I haven’t figured it out yet. But is there a master download of working ini+library files for your repeater system that I can test flash to my lora32 v3 and kind of reverse engineer a little (it’s for private use so I won’t share it)?
Any advice for a newbie like me for accomplishing my goal?
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it!
