I’m new to Lora and Meshtastic. I picked up a couple of these LILYGO®TTGO LORA32 V2.0 433/868/915Mhz ESP32 LoRa OLED 0.96 Inch SD Card Display Bluetooth WIFI ESP32 Module With Antenna|Circuits| - AliExpress, attached one of these batteries to each 4pcs 3.7V 1000mAh Lithium Rechargable Battery Micro JST 1.25 for Arduino Nodemcu | eBay, and connected the antennae. I flashed the
firmware-tlora-v2-1.2.44.f2...bin from the github repo - meshtastic/Meshtastic-device/releases .
And it worked. I paired two Android phones and I can set them side-by-side and send messages back and forth. Great! But if I take one two rooms away, they can’t talk at all. And I walked halfway down the block and the device at home received all the messages, but no replies came through to the traveling device. It seems like if they get more than a dozen feet apart, they start having communication problems.
Did I miss something?
