Frequencies on the Helium Network

Helium's LoRaWAN Network is built upon 8-channel gateways. This page will help you confirm the appropriate frequencies for gateway configuration for each country.

Feel free to use our packet forwarder configuration examples here.

danger

LoRa gateways on the Helium Network must transmit on uplink frequencies. Some gateways limit their transmit range to downlink frequencies and special configuration may be necessary.

Frequency Plans

Each frequency/channel supports multiple spreading factors. Lower spreading factors correspond to higher data rates, but shorter transmission ranges and less receiver sensitivity.
