The seller is very prompt with communication, shipment was quick, would definitely recommend. The board is exactly as described,which makes the rfm95 much easier to handle. soldering wires to the rfm directly works but is very messy, specially the antenna.
If you have an unused Rasberry Pi (any will work, in my case Zero W) and want make LoRa gateway experiment, this item is really suitable for your application. Just plugging into RasPi and install and compile source code (with your information) is enough to make your own LoRa gateway appears on TTN.
