I haven’t been able to find where this question has been asked before. I’ve read about serial/BT connections to 3rd party radios in to Reach, but what if I want to connect a LoRA radio to an existing 3rd party base station? I want to use a Reach RS+ or Reach RS as a rover, but use the internal radio to receive RTCMV3 from an existing base station with different 900Mhz radios. This would be less hassle than setting up another Reach base.
It looks like Reach M2/M+ LoRa radio may be the answer, but I can’t find any documentation on the pinouts etc. I would want to build a cable to supply it with power and an RS232 connection to my existing base station. Is the issue that the Reach M2/M+ LoRa radio even compatible with RS232?
Perhaps I am better off to get another radio that is compatible with the base, and connect externally to Reach via RS232? This will be more expensive, but probably give better range. I was trying to keep the connections to the rover simple.
