After a summer with failed attempts to get the water temperature and tide from the local pier all the way to my site I had to search for alternatives. The cause of failure was strangely enough not my coding or soldering. It was the basic issue with WiFi range and power usage.  Hence I had to start searching for alternatives for some Long Range wireless transfers.  I had briefly heard about LoRa, since a friend had been a TTN backer, and now it was time to read up.
