A project log for QMesh: A LoRa-based Voice Mesh Network

Developing a synchronized, flooded mesh network to carry codec2-encoded voice over LoRa

It looks like the basic principle of QMesh -- that a synchronized, flooded mesh network can achieve a decently-high packet receive rate via the capture effect -- is valid.

If I place two relay nodes right next to each other, I can get a packet receive rate (PRR) of around 80-100% when the received signals are strong. For marginal signal strengths, the collisions seem to effectively raise the noise floor.
