This is my first post to your wonderful community. I am new to LoRa / LoRaWAN.
I am keen to understand how I can estimate the power consumption of a node. I looked at the microchip part which supports protocol class A. I understand it has a Tx phase and two Rx phases. What will the module consume between Tx and the two Rx phases? I assumed idle current - however there is no way it would make 10 years on a coin cell sending only 10B message once an hour.
If anyone has any examples that would be great (microchip or not).
