Using LoRa LR1120 in TX continuous wave mode

Hi,

I’m using LoRa LR1120 on board LR1120DVK1TCKS.
I’m trying to operate LoRa in TX continuous wave mode, but it doesn’t work as expected.

Here is the following sequence that I tried to implement:
Note: before every command, I’m waiting until the LoRa is not busy

------------ Begin sequence ----------------

Reset LoRa (10 msec negative pulse)

GetStatus ( 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00)
Response Status = Last command status = CMD_OK

SetStandby (0x01, 0x1C, 0x01)
Response Status = Last command status = CMD_OK

SetPacketType (0x02, 0x0E, 0x02)
Response Status = Last command status = CMD_ERR (why?)

SetRfFrequency (0x02, 0x0B, 31:24, 23:16, 15:8, 7:0) (freq = 902 MHz)
Response Status = Last command status = CMD_OK

SetPaConfig (0x02, 0x15, 0x01, 0x00, 0x02, 0x02)
Response Status = Last command status = CMD_OK

SetTxCw (0x02, 0x19)
Response Status = Last command status = CMD_OK

GetStatus ( 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00)
Response Status = Last command status = CMD_ERR (why?)

----------------End sequence -----------------

Questions:

What am I missing or what’s wrong in the above sequence?

What should be the right sequence to operate the LoRa in this mode (TX continuous wave mode)?

Hi, please refer to the LR11xx SDK where you can find a reference implementation for features like the TX CW - see https://github.com/Lora-net/SWSD003/tree/master/apps/tx_cw
