I am new to all this.
Recently bought a Sim7600gh hat for pi.
I have some questions.
Is there a manual available.
Can I use a standard prepaid sim card purchased from say Coles?
Wanting to set up SMS (push notifications type stuff) for a security system.
Can any one help with the code ect.
Fairly new to Raspberry Pi and coding but i have managed to setup a NAS and PiHole on my Pi4 using youtube (just by copying code and following instruction).
It’s a bit of a buss when you finally get it all to work.
Welcome to the forum!!
There certainly is, i’ve just updated the product page to include the Wiki/Manual, you can also find it here: SIM7600G-H 4G HAT (B) - Waveshare Wiki
The Sim question is a bit tricky, you’ll have to make sure the bands that your carrier uses match the SIM7600G-H, the bands can be found here on the product page:
There are lots of examples around on the internet where someone has setup something similar, I’d definitely recommend checking out some other projects using an LTE module of some sort + the Wiki page
Let us know how you go!
Thanks Liam for the feedback and direction.
I don’t get a lot of time for all this and it is a bit start and stop, pick up latter.
Same as may others I suppose.
Will come back after researching.
Just to add to Liam’s response, Whirlpool has a good summary of all the different bands used here in AU and their corresponding carriers:
Give it a squiz when it comes time to pick up a SIM
That is very helpful. The 3 main telcos all use some of the 7600 frequencies/bandwidths so is looking good.
