Can this hack works with Alpha+?
Any instruction how to connect this hack in Alpha+ for Base and Rover.
Is Alpha+ usb can be used as well for this hack connection?
Probably, you can do a blog about this like this one.
Having a cheap Lora radio using your hack or using RAK 811 would be useful for Alpha+ Base and Rover for UAV Mapping and Survey.
Alpha+ already has UART interface, does not need such USB-to-UART converter.
Here is a description on using Alpha+ with radio:
So, we can connect this radio directly to the radio port of Alpha+ and will work?
So now, the question:
a) should we connect the green wire (TX) from the radio wire - yellow ? or
b) should we connect the green wire (TX) from the radio wire - white ?
What is the color of the wire to Alpha+ UART0_RXD for radio receiver?
OK. PIn 2 in 6-pin port or Yellow.
OK. You are referring to this radio that has serial port. I think this is better, 8km range.
915Mhz but only 3km range
So we need this one.
For radio transmitter side, data flow direction is from Alpha+ UART output to radio UART input, so output data is from pin-3 of the Alpha+ 6-pin connector.
For radio receiver side, data direction is from radio UART output to Alpha+ UART input, so output data from radio is to go to pin-2 of the Alpha+ 6-pin connector.
Common ground connection between radio and Alpha+ pin-6 is also required.
Thanks for posting a blog on this topic.
I just like to clarify what do you meant on this:
“For radio transmitter side”, is this Alpha+ base radio side?
“For radio receiver side”, is this Alpha+ rover radio side?
Yes, that’s correct.
Could Polaris manufacture radios for its gnss receivers?
We are working on a design…
Great! We’ll be waiting for…
Its an excellent news!
Sería excelente que tenga radió y batería interna un modelo más completo
Can the Raspberry Pi 3B+ be used instead of the Raspberry Pi Zero to connect radios on S100?
