Radio FeatherWing - RFM69HCW 433MHz
PRODUCT ID: 3230
Description
Add short-hop wireless to your Feather with these Radio Featherwings. These add-ons for any
Feather board will let you integrate packetized radio (with the RFM69 radio) or LoRa radio (with
the RFM9x's). These radios are good options for kilometer-range radio, and paired with one of
our WiFi, cellular or Bluetooth Feathers, will let you bridge from 433/900 MHz to the Internet or

will need to cut and solder on a small piece of wire (any solid or stranded core is fine) in order to
create your antenna. Optionally you can pick up a uFL or SMA edge-mount connector and attach
an external duck.
