    I made a Teensy LoRa board

    There's not much info here on LoRa technology, but I've decided to delve into it and make this little node shield.
    I decided to go with the MicroChip RN2483 for its good documentation. Also added GPS for testing.
    Should be up and running soon.

    Nice work matching the Teensy form factor with that Radio module. What's the intent of the version with two SMA jacks?

    Thanks! That one's for RPi and these modules offer both 433/868MHz, thus two antennas, although 868 is more common.

    @foyd, I haven't looked into that particular RF module, but have been using the Hope RFM radios for a couple of years. They are a somewhat cheaper, and have xmit power to 20 dBm and good library support.

    Is there something special about the RN2483 radios that would be good to know about?

    I chose it mainly due to the great documentation and support at Microchip. Soon I may also need the parts to be fully certified.

    Should be up on Tindie shortly.

    There's not much to it. The RN needs 3.3V, a cap, gnd and Rx/Tx. I decided to add an on/off switch and battery charger so that it can be carried around for testing.

    Great. Please let me know. I'm working on a list of products people have confirmed to work with Teensy.

    Hi Greg,
    I had to suspend them because Microchip was doing firmware updates and noone had the modules in stock, but they'll be back shortly since it looks like both US and EU bands are available again.

    Any progress on having them back in the Tindie store? I couldn't find them searching for "Teensy LoRa"
