Soldering RFM to Sensebender
So my shiny little Sensebender gateway arrived today in the post, man am I excited!
Just had a question, I need to solder the RFM69 to the underside of the module, but I have never done that kind of overlay solder before, and just wanted to check. do I need any insulation between the RFM and the sensebender? Or does the green mask provide for the electrical isolation? So, do I just lay the RFM onto the sensebender and solder the pads?
And I'm guessing I still need to have the antenna wire soldered on to the RFM, even though there is a corresponding pad on the sensebender underneath the antenna pad on the RFM.
You can solder the RFM69 module directly on the Sensebender. There is two position pinheader for the antenna (the antenna pad is connected to this).
Many thanks @tbowmo I'll sit down tonight and fire up the iron, looking forward to freeing up another pro-mini back into the pool for more sensors!!
