      Hi Sara, any other thoughts on what I can do to troubleshoot this issue?

      I have not, I’m still getting this when I monitor the output:

      “Attempting to connect to the internet and synchronize RTC with NIST
      Could not connect to internet for clock sync.”

      This is exactly what I have for the lib_dep portion of the platformio.ini:

      lib_deps =
      ;    EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@0.23.16
      ;  ^^ Use this when working from an official release of the library
          https://github.com/EnviroDIY/ModularSensors.git#develop
      ;  ^^ Use this when if you want to pull from the develop branch
      Is that what it should look like?

      I totally understand. I’m thankful that I’m still able to work full time from home it has been incredibly challenging. But I totally get it and it it’s totally understandable. Thanks again for taking the time to help me with this.

      The lib_dep part of the platform.ini says:

      lib_deps =
          EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@0.23.16
      ;  ^^ Use this when working from an official release of the library
      ;    https://github.com/EnviroDIY/ModularSensors.git#develop
      ;  ^^ Use this when if you want to pull from the develop branch
      So should I replace the whole line that says “EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@0.23.16” with the link?

      Hello Sara, sorry to bother you but I wanted to check in again about this.

      Is there something I could do in the meantime while you work on the testing mode update?  Is there a way I can try to fix the connection issue without using the testing mode? Thanks.

      No apology necessary, it had been a little while so I just wanted to check in and see if there had been any progress. Thank you for the update.

      Hi again, Sara. Just wanted to check in and see if you had any success with this. I would like to be able to finish up the programming of the board so I can finally get it in the field to start collecting data. Thank you!

      Hello Sara,

       

      I just wanted to check in to see if you have had any luck with updating the libraries for this. Thanks.

      Great! Thank you for taking the time to help me with this and trying to update the library.

      I think I’m following. So how do I go about fixing that?

      Hi Sara,

      Thanks so much for your help. Making those changes to the code you last mentioned worked and it compiled successfully! I was able to upload to the board and that feels like a huge step. Thank you! I’m now monitoring the output from the board on VScode and everything seems to be in order except for the sim card. You can see in the attached txt file that the output values for the sim card signal strength are -9999. I have let the program run for a while now and nothing seems to be uploading to monitormywatershed. I checked the sim card on hologram’s website and it is active and connected to the network but not sending any data. So I assume there is either an error in the code or a problem with the physical connection with the board. Any idea where to start troubleshooting this?
