XR Mode is now the longest range, networking stack available for battery powered LoRa devices today. In terms of real-world range improvements, we saw suburban ground level (2 meter antenna height for gateway and 1 meter antenna height for endpoint) range improve by more than 3x and when gateway antennas were raised to 5 meters, by 5x. At more extreme (i.e. cellular industry) gateway heights (e.g. 3,849 feet atop Mount Diablo in Danville, CA) we achieved range of 36 miles to an endpoint on the ground north of Stockton, CA using a simple dipole antenna.
