@geeksville Ok, so my plan right now is to make some kind of repeater for Lora.I want to achive the following:
- the channel settings should be remotely-configured through lora
- the device will simply repeat the message.It’s not necesarry to connect to the meshtastic network.I just want to repeat it.
I know you want to implement a relay function and in the meshtastic.I think I will consider buying some boards of this kind and I hope to link them to a solar panel.
I will use my drone to place it on the top of a tree or on a pillar so I cannot access it anymore.That’s why I think it’s cool to implement a “relay password” and access it to change the channels if you need and other parameters with commands like /changeName “Name here” “Repeter Password”
I really don’t know what to do at this stage: Wait for the Mestastic project to implement a repeater mode or try to convert the code suggested by @tuxphone and stick with the default channel.
I am not a developer, but I usually copy-paste pieces of code.
I want to place the repeator in a month or so and I won’t be able to get it down for “Software updates”, so I need it to be remotly configured.
