Input
6
Payload size13 bytesTotal payload, including (at least) 13 bytes of LoRaWAN header if used
7
Spread factorSF12SF12-SF6. Higher means more range and better reception, and more airtime
8
Explicit headeryesno header (1) or with header (0). This is the low-level header that indicates coding rate, payload length and payload CRC presence and can be left out if both sides have these parameters fixed
9
Low DR optimizeyesdisabled (0) or enabled (1), intended to correct for clock drift at SF11 and SF12
10
Coding rate4 / 84/5 - 4/8. This is the error correction coding. Higher values mean more overhead.
11
Preamble symbols88 for all regions defined in LoRaWAN 1.0, can be different using plain LoRa
12
Bandwidth125kHzTypically 125, sometimes 250 or 500
