First of all; this project is based on a previous project of NeverDie, all credits to him. (LINK)
Second: this is my first thing to publish, don't be too harsh ;)
Introduction To get more into the whole MySensors NRF5 business I needed a gateway that I could fit somewhere inside my house and was protected from children and overenthusiastic cleaning operations by myself / the misses.
So I created this simple PCB based on above-mentioned design, that fits right into a 3$ box.
Software Instructions on how to proceed with installation please see: (LINK)
Hardware I resoldered the cap next to the Antenna en connected a cheap antenna. When I put it next to another gateway without this antenna is seems to have better reception with the external antenna versus the PCB antenna.
EXTRA: I put also the footprint of an RFM69 inside, so I would have a backup for I would ever go back to the RFM69. And because I could. I DID NOT TEST THIS FEATURE.
