KISS (keep it stupid simple) Antenna Stands
‘hidden’ 3v3 dc/dc converter Pololu S7V8F3
little programmable packet generator
the LoRaWAN metaldetector frontend kit arrived
not to complicated for a sunday
conclusion : it works, if you want to detect big metal objects from a 5 cm distance
so defenitely not usefull for detecting parked cars (or finding gold nuggets)
The Things Node : new low power library development
I know I’m replying to a rather old message, but thought I add this in if someone else was having trouble getting lower power use out of the BSFrance Lora32u4 II
After struggling to get anything below 200 mA, found the Arduino IDE board library provided by DiYMall must have been wrong or old. Downloaded one from BSFrance website with much better success with LowPower lib. There may be hope to use it as a battery powered node after all.
Waiting on a new multimeter to get more accurate results.
thanx I will try
(can you meassure it powered from a battery/lipo) so including the dc/dc circuit
did you also burn the bootoader from bsfrance?
I really don’t understand this but he, its 20x better then my lowest find and very acceptable for a battery powered device (its not 50 uA but ok )
€14,20 EUR incl shipping and coming from France
see code example here
* ordered another one, now from BSFRANCE from link , and it’s expected here beginning next week
The day after … and what a great day it was !
have fun on day 2
tnx Charles ! BlueJedi send me a messages yesterday evening … I am happy, now I can try everything I learned from the excellent RAK-RESIN workshop

When i saw the picture…
Yesterday ariving from a nice guy from our community.
And YES he want`s to proof my solderskills!
And @Charles … A big THANK YOU for your marvelous PCB`s. Love them.
At the moment at my Wörkbensch.
