RAK Hotspot V2 as common Gateway


Does miner RAK Hotspot V2 support Semtech packet forwarder to our network server (for example ChirpStack)?
Can it be used as a Helium miner and as a LoRaWAN gateway at the same time?


At the same time no, you could do it one at a time. Simplest way would be to plug a new SD card and flash some RAK7248 firmware to it in case you decide to do it:


Hi @Hobo ,
i tried to do so, but the packetforwarder is not starting:

INFO: [main] TTY port /dev/ttyAMA0 open for GPS synchronization

CoreCell reset through GPIO17…

Opening SPI communication interface

Note: chip version is 0x05 (v0.5)

ERROR: Failed to set SX1250_0 in STANDBY_RC mode

ERROR: failed to setup radio 0

ERROR: [main] failed to start the concentrator

Do you know what i can do?
Thank you
