  • Use Lora shield and RPi to build a LoRaWAN gateway

    Hi DavidI am very sorry for not responding, after my annual leave some personal issues kept me away from this project. Finally tonight started to catch up again and saw your reply as well the new instructions on dragino wiki page. Thanks a lot for taking this up and within the next week or so I will try to get it running according your instructions.Apologies for the delay and many thanks for your instructions and assistancebest regardsMarcel

  • Use Lora shield and RPi to build a LoRaWAN gateway

    Hi DavidI bought 2 Dragino LoRa/GPS HATs for getting familiar with lora and TTN. Goal is to use a raspberry pi with the Lora/GPS hat as node at later stage. As I currently have no real GW, I use one RPI+Hat as single single_chan_pkt_fwd following your instructions - I got this working. The 2nd RPI+Hat I planned to setup as node using lmic (as you use it in conjunction with arduino, I intended to use a pi adapted version from github.com/ernstdevreede/lmic_pi. Unfortunately experiencing some issues: it seems that for init + transmitting dio0, dio1 and dio2 are used while according schematic dio0 is mapped to RPI pin7 but I could not find any references for dio1 and dio2 (on the arduino shield they are mapped to arduino pin2=dio0 pin6=dio1 pin7=dio2) as I understood dio0+1 are used for LoR...see more »Hi DavidI bought 2 Dragino LoRa/GPS HATs for getting familiar with lora and TTN.

How do you make use of these functions on the Lora/GPS Hat? Also an additional question for the GPS, also thanks to your instructions, it was strait forward to get the GPS working on RPI3. In the specs PPS is available, whichwould be nice to use in conjunction with NTP. Would be great to get it working and if you can give me some hints on these topics as I like the HW pretty much.Thanks Marcel
