The good things: The MKRFOX1200 does work in The Netherlands! And the Geolocation improved last week from a very bad >30 km to better than <7 km accuracy.
The real bad thing: I drove around a bit and soon discovered that coverage is very limited. This is strange because my brothers Sens’it Sigfox module works very well.
In the coming week I am going to do some coverage comparisons between MKRFOX1200 and Sens’it. I meanwhile send and email with my complaints to the Dutch respresentative of Sigfox and to Ariduino.
My impression is that it could be a hardware related bug. So far there is no reason to believe that Sigfox designates only a few base stations to MKRFOX1200?
Is there anyone able to measure the transmission power at the antenna output? I may have to post these issues on the Sigfox web-site also…
So far I would say wait for version 2.0. If there is no solution soon I will claim a refund!
