I bought a Sodaq Explorer board (Orange edition), and it works very well. For a next step, I would like to add an antenna in order to have a better signal quality (LoRaWAN) since I’m often far from the public gateway. So, I was wondering how I could do it.
I tried to solder the antenna on the board without removing the PCB part (I was afraid of remove it and not be able to send packages anymore). As I forgot to take a picture of my board, the two pictures below present the connection I made.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work at all. So, I would like to check with you what it is the correct way to solder the antenna and see if what I did makes sense.
