I’m looking for someone or something that clearly defines what I need to do. I see a lot of people using these radios with ESP8266 boards so I’m sure that there is someone who can point me to a clear how to?
This is what I get in my serial monitor while trying otaa:
@thomaswoods if you see a transmission in the air, then a lot is already working, I would say
First you have to rule out that the gateway you are using is not reveiving your RF signal at all, or that the gateway is not forwarding the packets to TTN
Then you might want to check the contents of LMIC.frame, either by connecting a logic analyzer to the MISO, MOSI, CLK and NSS lines between the processor and the RFM95 or by creating some kind of debug function that outputs this data to USB. If you are seeing nothing on TTN then it might be that the DevAddr or the MIC are incorrect, or that the whole message is ill-formatted. The last one is not likely, if you are using the LMIC library. The DevAddr is in plain text in LMIC.frame, so that is easy to check; the MIC is an encrypted key so that might be somewhat harder to check.
Like Thomas I am facing almost same issue .Can you help me on this .I am using RFM95 and ESP8266 as a node. I used arduino-LMIC ABP code to send data to ttn. On my serial monitor I was able to see only "sending Packet queued " but I was able to receive one single packet on ttn not further… I used same pin connection as Thomas used but for DIO 0,1 of lora didnt connected to esp. When I connect it to DIO 0 to GPIO5 and DIO 1 to GPIO 4 of esp8266 the node is failing . Can you help me to solve it.
