This page explain how to use Iridium satellite constellation for short burst data messages with a rockblock device.
You'll need to pay for the monthly fee (6 £) and buy credits to use this how to.
All text with these recipes will transfer without crypto. If you need crypto or a web interface, try Sat Messenger / RBS

Software

  • See the hardware part to setup serial communication.
  • Get serial communication software like coolterm or picocom.
  • Depending on your computer select the right serial port like : /dev/ttyUSB0, /dev/tty.usbserial (type ls /dev/ in a terminal)
  • Setup 19200 baud and default 0D 0A line feed is fine. (Official Rock7 documentation is wrong !!)
  • Repository for python style : here

You need to type "AT Commands" and the rockblock will answer like all modems. You can start with AT The modem will answer : OK

Answer is like +CRISX:000,000,00000000 (phone/fax,SBD,timestamp)

MT and how to use RING

  • AT+SBDSX gives if RING Alert is set because MT message(s) is waiting
  • If any, transfer it from space to MT Buffer with AT+SBDIX (todo test if mt queued is valid in modem answer). RING will be set to 0 even if more messages are waiting.
  • Read it from MT buffer and ask AT+SBDSX for waiting messages.
  • If any : loop ask for transfer, read from MT buffer.

Rockblock +

IP 68 / 9-30V. You need :

  • USB <-> serial DB9 adapter like a "Ugreen 2M USB 2.0 to Serial RS232 DB9 9Pin PL2303 Cable Adapter Converter".
