Meshtastic® is a project using inexpensive LoRa radios as a long range off-grid communicator for areas without reliable cellular service.
These radios are great for hiking, skiing, paragliding!
Meshtastic is an open source project available on GitHub. Their generous volunteers donate their personal time to write and maintain this codebase. If you would like to contribute, see their GitHub, join their Discord server, and read up on their forum.
RAK & LILYGO Hardware
Need coax cable and a 915 MHz antenna for your Meshtastic gear?
NOTE: aside from this kit above, our other cables at Rokland.com are "RP-SMA" style which is different from "SMA" style used by LILYGO. If you need to purchase a different length cable and get one of our RP-SMA type, also get THIS RP-SMA to SMA CONVERTER to make it fit your LILYGO product.
