Re: [tracker2] T2-301
- This ought get you started for setting frequency and tx power:
from there I think otwinconfig is used to configure, but hopefully someone
can verify that.
brings up an interesting question though.... can the t2-301 be configured
with just a terminal program and NO added software and without using
windows or not? If not, why not?

- I always disable SmartBeaconing for testing - it makes things a lot
