    I’m trying to set the power to the maximum but untill now I’m getting 10 dBm
    I used this value:
    #define CHB_CC1190_PRESENT 1
    but I’m getting only 300 meters of coverage using BPSK_20 and the omnidirectional antennas included in the package.
    How can I enable the CC1190?
    I would like to increase the coverage area.

    Hi. The CHB_CC1190_PRESENT define is actually no longer used. The CC1190 definition is located in the board definition file you choose when you upload the sketch to the board. It should be taken care of automatically. When you select the board you are using, please make sure you have the following set:

    When the correct board is chosen, the driver will configure the radio for an external amplifier and also send out the Tx/Rx signals to the amplifier to switch between the two states.
    Hope that helps.
