Input
6
Payload size13 bytes
Total payload, including (at least) 13 bytes of LoRaWAN header if used
7
Spread factorSF9
SF12-SF6. Higher means more range and better reception, and more airtime
8
Explicit headeryes
no 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 optimizeno
disabled (0) or enabled (1), intended to correct for clock drift at SF11 and SF12
10
Coding rate4 / 5
4/5 - 4/8. This is the error correction coding. Higher values mean more overhead.
11
Preamble symbols8
8 for all regions defined in LoRaWAN 1.0, can be different using plain LoRa
12
Bandwidth125kHz
Typically 125, sometimes 250 or 500
