nRF24L01+ module on Arduino shield

by PC-Man on Fri Feb 15, 2013 5:30 pm


I made some Arduino shields for nRF24L01+ modules and I have interesting problem:

If I have modules directly connected to the shield (pinhead on module to socket on shield), there is high packet loss (about 20-30%) when sending data to another nRF module. But, if I touch the module antenna by my hand OR modules are connected to this shield by wires (cca 10cm), all works ok.

I use these nRF modules:


Any idea what can cause this problem?

We don't carry these modules and are not familiar with their operating characteristics. The seller should be able to answer your technical questions.
Since this is not an Arduino-specific question, I am moving this topic to "General Project Help"
