Using various sources and programs & lots of time, I cobbled together my own Monteino Library  ;)
I used the Semtech Lora Calculator  8)
I really wish my monteino's could be emaile to me  :o



And the Lora Calc




I think i need to power from farad capacitor, no way i will find a battery that lasts more the 25 years  ???

I did a personal design based on the "Monteino" concept, however i have designed a board that fits on the back of the RF9x Lora radios using an Attiny167. Since i have written my own uart & spi & lora library, I have added untested fhss & the ability to assign node & address id's whicj just fits under 8k and uses 200b.
Anywho here is my artwork  ;)

Because everything has to be certified & i don't have Altium Designer , I did the semtech SX1276RF1KAS_e269v01a reference design manually , it took a very long long time. I can post gerbers if anyone is interested?



Only the crystal is missing @ the moment, it is school holidays & i have the kids!

Not sure how it works in Australia, but wouldn't your board still need to be tested?  For instance, the dielectric constant of the PCB your using might make a difference.  At least in the US, even if the chip itself has passed FCC, that doesn't imply that anything containing that chip is automatically approved also.

Yes, the board needs to be tested before using commercially. Safety, EMI, Efficiency, Environmental & Approval Standards, that applies for any commercial product sold to the pubic, this is a design based on a reference design. I took the time to look at the board, compare the components and estimate were they should be.
