Here's my first experience with the Arduino MKR1310 and The Things Network (TTN).
A (failed) attempt to follow the tutorial and connect to TTN.
I'm using a Arduino MKR 1310 WAN, tested with two different 868 MHz antennas, in an area known to be covered by TTN.
I'm following the tutorial step by step.
Made an application on TTN:
Loaded the FirstConfiguration sketch to my board:
Registered my device using the Device EUI:
Selected OTAA, and entered the APP EUI and KEY.
No success. The board returns "Something went wrong; are you indoor? Move near a window and retry", and TTN console says there was no contact.
