What is the LoRa® used in the SLR-434M?

LoRa is a patented modulation technique by Semtech. When used with the SLR-434M with lower data rate (15-245 bps instead of 4,800/9,600 bps), higher sensitivity is achieved. So it becomes possible to increase the range without increasing the RF power output. You can expect higher range (few kms) compared to conventional FSK. The user can select whether to use the LoRa or conventional FSK mode.
