Can you mix RFM69 and RFM69H in one network?

  • Hi,

    I'm busy with the RFM69's atm.
    I got a serial gateway with a regular RFM69 and a node with RFM69. Both are working with eachother.

    I also got a ESP8266 gateway with RFM69H (wasnt paying attention while soldering) but the RFM69 node isn't connecting to this gateway.

    Might the "H" be the problem?

    @Omemanti H has more output power, which means it will need a more powerful and stable power supply. Except that, with and without H are the same.

  • Oke, thnx!

    Then I need to search somewhere else.
    It says that my radio is oke, so I guess the wiring was right..
    Ill connect an extra power supply then! maybe that works.

  • @Omemanti you'll need to uncomment this line for the RFM69H:

    #define MY_IS_RFM69HW // Mandatory if you radio module is the high power version (RFM69HW and RFM69HCW), Comment it if it's not the case

    I'm using Moteino's with and without H in the same network without issues.

    Now I'm trying to get into mysensors but I'm running into a lot of issues:

    • Node MCU with RFM69 keeps crashing after flasing it with the Gateway sketch
    • Flashing the same node with a blink script works but when I reset it or flash any larger sketch to it, it is running the old gateway sketch!
    • Can't seem to get a simple arduino pro mini to run with the RFM69

    I'd like to create a network of ESP8266 (Node MCU) + RFM69 MQTT gateway and Arduino Pro Mini + RMF69 nodes (and repeaters)

    Any tips how you got the ESP8266 or the Pro Mini working are welcome?

    @mpp best way would probably be to start a new thread describing what you have done, what you expected to happen and what happened instead. Also see for troubleshooting recommendations.

    Try reverting to MySensors 2.0.0 and update AVR to 1.6.18. made my node al lot more stable.
