I’m working on a LoRa to thinger.io gateway, I was able to send data, and see it. Distance w esp32 & good antenna on receiving end 2 km with open sight. Receiving antenna is 10m above ground.
I use a raspberry PI as gateway, listening on mqtt messages, and a esp32 w onboard LoRa as receiving end. The PI manages the connections, for now only push data, device driven.
