The SX1272 LoRa module main advantage is the reach increasing but also the cost saving respect other similar modules like XBee 868 or XBee 900. The Multiprotocol Radio Shield can be used to connect two modules in order to combine the existing Cooking-Hacks modules and make connections between platforms. The SX1272 LoRa module uses the SPI bus. The SPI port allows more speed communication and frees up the UART for other purposes like debugging or to connect communication modules.
It comes with a 900 / 915 MHz antenna to be used in this frequency.
