P251: LoRa Hands On
To get familiar with what LoRa can do.
Format: In-person workshop with VECTOR’s LoRa test units.
Gather at City Hall to casually explore what the LoRa units can do together.
In 2022, VECTOR tested using LoRa for APRS. We set up gateways and trackers. We organized messaging times to test sending and receiving messages.
VECTOR was able to send and receive APRS data at high resolution from Horseshoe Bay to northern Kerrisdale.
LoRa uses very low power to reliably send extremely short messages.
