We have setup two RAK7258 gateways in two cities with a LoRa FiberGlass Antenna.
We are very new to LoraWAN and thought the easiest way to get more confident with this technology was to setup two gateways and get some experience.
Also we were hoping that the range was better, the antenna is still indoor and we plan to add it on the top of the roof, but we can only reach our Dragoino gps tracker just a few meters outside each house.
What we hoped was to setup something that was covering mostly the whole city (population ~5000)
Is this possible? What should we purchase? Is a RAK7258 no go for this, or is it fine? Really no budget, just want to cover most of the town.
Thank you in advance - i know the higher the anenna the better ofcourse, but some notes on the gateway/antenna will be appreciated. Do you think a RAK7258 will be sufficient for this?
