How to Find Maximum Packet Size


(Ryanwint) #1

I’m trying to find out the maximum amount of data I can fit into one transmission from node to gateway. A weird thing has been happening where the maximum amount of data I can fit into the packet changes. One day I can’t fit more than 25 bytes, and the next I’m able to send 50 bytes.

Anyone have any ideas how I can figure out how much data can fit in a packet without it changing?

I found the documentation for what the maximum packet size should be, but my experiments have not lined up with it:

Using RN2903 with sf7, pwr14, and data rates between 0 and 3.
