Hi All,

Thanks to Julian we have a new record for TTN Toowoomba with a node connecting to the USQ TTN gateway from 85km away!!!

Between the gateways located at Glenvale, USQ Campus and the TAFE campus we almost have complete coverage of the Toowoomba City area, which is great.

As we start to see more and more traffic on our gateways - please remember the TTN Fair Usage Policy.

The TTN Fair Access Policy limits the data each end-device can send, by allowing:
• An average of 30 seconds uplink time on air, per day, per device.
• At most 10 downlink messages per day, including the ACKs for confirmed uplinks.
A good goal is to keep the application payload under 12 bytes, and the interval between messages at least several minutes.

Please share your stories, questions and new products ideas with us
