See the example below on how to use the lora nvram methods. You can use this to for example send a packet of sensor data over LoRa, and then enter deepsleep to save power. It is also possible to use OTAA instead of ABP by changing the activation method and authentication parameters. Note that the non volatile LoRa storage will be erased after it is restored, meaning you will have to save it again before sleeping, and it is not possible to restore the values twice without saving in between.
