How to install a Waveshare SX1302 Hat on a Raspi as Gateway

Hello,
I am trying to install a sx1302 has on a Raspi 3 using the Wavshare Wiki. When trying with the “./chip_id” command I get the following message:
CoreCell reset through GPIO23…
SX1261 reset through GPIO23…
CoreCell power enable through GPIO18…
CoreCell ADC reset through GPIO13…
Opening SPI communication interface
ERROR: failed to start the gateway
Here I don’t get any further, why the gateway can’t start at this point.

7 times out of 10 this is incorrect concentrator reset - logic/timing issue requiring several tries for success or most often reset pin is not correctly mapped/connected…

And the other 3 times SPI was not enabled using raspi-config.

Yep exactly!, actually 1st category was possibly 6.5 out if 10…the other 1 in 20 is overlap with SPI problem even if correctly enabled with some cards not supporting full speed/timing and needing clock rate to be dialed back! :rofl: the guilty card vendors know who they are… :wink:
