Radio not working

Post by pmulvey » Sat May 09, 2020 9:33 pm

I set up a Master / Slave arrangement using Makecode plus a small bit of Javascript, it works great. I then started to rewrite the Master in Micropython and the Slave receives no signal. I even tried looping through all of the channels but no joy. Before I get into details is there anything blindingly obvious that I may be overlooking? Is there anything in the micropython radio implimentation that might be incoompatible with the blocks?

Thanks lujo,

I had read about the complex packet issue before and forgot about it! I followed your link and at your advice I used Phil Hall's implementation. All seems good now for transmit and receive packets.
