Automated GPS to LoRA beacon project

I am currently building a GPS beacon that uses LoRa output. The only thing I'm having issues with is the code to automatically connects the Raspberry Pi starting the task automatically once the Raspberry Pi has been powered up. Anyone have any suggestions on this process. I'm also looking into code ...

Re: Hobby Rockets - Where to find accurate sensors and How to transfer data?

I have seen Skygate - but the software is written specific to particular RF modules and frequencies. MikroE LoRa2 click uses very specific codes to get it operating and is not compatible with the current software. Tried it already - great interface!

I am having limited success with a the LORA RF 2 module supported by MikroE. Not sure if anyone else is using this with success or not. Basically - the code supplied is incomplete. Anyone else know how to get it functioning? My goal is to load up a visual tracking program like SkyGate on my base sta...
