$34.97 Sold out

Pickup currently unavailable at 2251 NW 41st Street

The normal RAK Meshtastic starter kits come with a RAK19007 base board which is generation 2 with a USB-C port. This special kit has a RAK5005-O base instead, which was gen 1 with a micro USB port instead of USB-C. Other than that, they are the same. 

Meshtastic is an off-grid messaging system using inexpensive hardware to create your personal mesh. Radios forward messages to the next node to distribute them over the network. Communicate kilometers/miles between nodes. Internet-connected relay nodes enable the conversation to move online too.

This comes pre-flashed with Meshtastic firmware.

Worked great!

Works great! I just wish more were available in the US at any one time. These things sell out fast and then stay out of stock for weeks.
