    I am very new to the world of electronics and circuit boards. I am a graduate student of civil engineering looking to deploy snow sensing stations using the Mayfly. They will be satellite stations around an existing piece of infrastructure that already has radio communication set up with Campbell Scientific data loggers. I don’t think the network needs to be anything too advanced. I believe I just need communication between two RF modules, sending data from the satellite station to the Campbell Scientific data logger. I’ve been reading manuals and watching videos, and they have been helpful, but it’s easy to get lost in the sea of information when you are just starting out.

    The XBee Pro S3B is just what I have at the moment. I am not familiar with all the differences in modules and what the advantages and disadvantages are.
