    Begin by soldering the male header pins to the DLP-RFS1280 on a breadboard. Then Solder the DLP-RFS1280 to the PCB. Lastly the female header pins to the PCB. I've found if the PCB is resting on the DLP-RFS1280 and female header pins the soldering is easier.

    Open the Arduino IDE. Open the library manager to download the "sx1280OverSpi" library. Go to File > Examples > sx1280OverSpi > arduinoSendAndReceive to open the program for running the Lora Shield. Verify and upload to an Arduino.

    Open the serial monitor. Make sure you have the right baud rate. You should see a continuous print out. It will say what the DLP-RFS1280 is busy doing, the message being output, and the incoming message. Messages may be up to 255 characters so printing it may be very long.
