////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
This problem occurs when i try to send my data the second time without resetting (Remove and re-connect) RAK811.
For your info, my data is 64 bytes in length and the communication gap between RAK 811 and RAK 7249 is less than 20 meters.

What is the SF for sending the data? You can shorten the data length to less than 51 bytes and try again. It is recommended that you upgrade to the latest firmware.

SF? you mean Standard Format??
will the upgrade change the AT commands?? like in the previous version “at+recv” was deprecated and blend with “at+sent” in the newer versions right?
And its almost impossible to reduce the payload length from 64 bytes to a whole 51 bytes as we have a payload format which is later decoded.

No. @Nicholas means SF - spreading factor. For payload length, SF and DR, please see here: https://lora-alliance.org/sites/default/files/2018-04/lorawantm_regional_parameters_v1.1rb_-_final.pdf
You are working in Class C? Can you explain a little bit why?
You should be in Class A to send when you want.

There is a limit in the protocol. When your SF rate reaches a certain value, the maximum byte length is 51.You can check the status by command.
