I am still playing around discovering how the Lora spreading factor affects sending the messages. As far as I understand, the spreading factor affects the max data throughput and the range that the signal can be send.
For testing purposes, I use my own single channel gateway on which I can set a fixed spreading factor. Currently it is on SF7 but I would like to run/ try it on SF11 or SF12 to see whether it improves the signal range (on SF7 it is receiving signals that are no further away than only about 100m).
Would increasing the SF help increasing the signal range?
If yes, is there a way to set SodaqOne to a fixed SF?
