I’ve just got and set up my mesh devices Is a little thin on the ground where I am in the UK. I am running a powered node and am keenly awaiting txTenna
Out of curiosity I am interested in how routing is achieved and how the hop count will be increased…
I am assuming that there is no routing and that a node will just rebroadcast any message not intended for itself. With this assumption in mind, do nodes have to keep a list (maybe a hash?) of every sent message so they don’t retransmit one already relayed in an infinate loop? Does such requirement essentially limit the number of allowable hops? I know that infinate hops has been discussed, but I am interested in how this is possible at any volume with no routing and limited memory to store lists of relayed messages. I can imagine an individual node could see the same message many times.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to having more fun with my goTennas
