Just wondering how many times a message can be repeated across a mesh network.
This protocol maxes out at 7. But it is really more limited by all nodes only having one radio (which is a fine choice for cost and complexity reasons).
The sending node specifies a Max hops per packet and currently picks 3 for that value. Because given the long range of the radios and the initial use case that makes sense (given that we mostly use naive flood routing).
I’ve promised @CycloMies an updated version of the protocol doc this week. And he will further improve it.
So three is the limit for now, but 7 might be in the near future?
