The transmission rate is determined by whatever you put in the sketch of your logger.  I don’t know what sketch you’re starting with, but if you’re using one of our examples that we include with the ModularSensors library, then there’s a line about 50 lines down that says this: const uint8_t loggingInterval = 5;

So 5 is the number of minutes between transmissions.  Change that number to whatever your desired interval is, keeping in mind that more frequent transmissions will use shorten your battery life, especially if you’ve got power-hungry sensors or minimal solar exposure.
