Overview

As Part of a bundle of 3 LoRa nodes we launched at Pi Supply we decided to launch one for the micro:bit to make LoRa more accessible to a younger audience.

Using the RAK811 LoRa module we created a PCB with the micro:bit connector and passive circuitry to support the Radio Module.

To get it working I then programmed up a library compatible with makecode enabling it to be easily programmed using the drag and drop blocks. Making it very accessible to beginners.
