I was hoping to make a lora addon or plug in device for a raspberry pi that has outernet software to decode the ku downconverted signal.
I have several ESP32 boards with sx1276 lora and bluetooth and wifi transceivers built in. I am slowly learning to get them communicate in both the lora and lorawan protocol. So adding outernet protocol might have been able to be created. They also communicate via uart to a typical computer.
The sx1276 only goes up to 928Mhz … but I’d plan to figure out how to install the sx1280 module ($11 US) to get up the equivalent on the dreamcatcher. Maybe some sx1280 boards are already available… ?
These devices cost around $30 US. So it is not terrible expensive.
The stumbling block is esp32 software would need be developed.
