NURDspace LoRa pager network

The idea is to have a pager-network for at least Wageningen and Gouda. It will communicate via LoRa over 433.775MHz (and over internet for those lacking a tranceiver).

implementation @ NURDspace

The LoRa-gateway is currently in the bar near the window. It is an rpi-3b.

The software it runs is https://github.com/folkertvanheusden/HAM-router

The idea is that it'll be a gateway to our ircbot (GHBot) for !summon and for our pager thing in Wageningen (tahtkev). Currently it announces itself as a APRS LoRa node with a beacon every 5 and 10 minutes.

The pi also runs a gps disciplined ntp-server. The gpsd can be accessed from the network as well.
