Hi Folks, I just popped up an 8 channel gateway north of Glasgow.
Looking to get a decent range around me, but right now I’m building a new antenna to try to achieve that.
I’m looking to initiate a community here as one doesn’t seem to exist - anyone about?
Welcome - I gather from @Jeff-UK that Glasgow is well served, I’m sure he’ll chime in with more accurate data.
I think TTN Glasgow has a huge opportunity with some demonstrations of data collection & presentation in October at the next global Climate Change conference.
Indeed there are around 8-10 GW’s in Glasgow & surrounding area…have seen peak of 12 in the past. As there were so many and so far from Thames Valley area in a pandemic decided to hold off deploying any of mine in region though open in future if there are good sites available
In Glasgow you have Uni gw + you have CENSIS on your door step who have been involved with LoRa/LoRaWAN for a few years now and worked closely with Semtech for a time… might be worth letting CENSIS team know you have started community and asking their support Good Luck!
I’ve spotted several around on the map but it’s not clear to me how best to get in touch with them, hence this post . I notice one seems to be in my old office in Glasgow uni on Oakfield Ave, which made me chuckle. Good to see it’s a relatively active area.
Once a Community is created then the map on community page will show the user handle of the ‘owner’ for a given Gateway, and the ability to call up their profile (TTN not TTN Forum) and that should allow you to contact them - and possibly invite to join community. By way of example look at one of my initiated communities and compare with equivalent map area on main map (try say Bourne End & Cookham (effectivey South Bucks & Upper/Mid Thames Valley) https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/community/bourne-end-and-cookham/ or the overlapping community for Windsor https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/community/windsor/). The main map used to show owner also but that change a couple of years back and if there is no community in the target area its a challenge to reach owners of GW’s placed on the main TTN map.
Let me know if you need help setting up community…drop me a DM
