SatUplink Shield in Lieu of Cell Phone

Primary tabs

Topic Type: 
Idea

With a $99 annual fee, it could be spendier than the cell-phone method, but seems to be far more robust and will work on farms outside of good cell phone coverage. You can't program it remotely, as it only talks one way, so I would think of this as a separate branch of the project. Regardless could still be super valuable.

Indeed! Seems like a good design alternative for those that don't have easy cell phone access. I think also warrants a spot in the documentation at least as a note for now. Perhaps somebody will implement it and provide a little tutorial!
