// rf95_server.cpp
// Example program showing how to use RH_RF95 on Raspberry Pi
// Uses the bcm2835 library to access the GPIO pins to drive the RFM95 module
// Requires bcm2835 library to be already installed
// Use the Makefile in this directory:
// cd example/raspi/rf95
// make
// sudo ./rf95_server
// Contributed by Charles-Henri Hallard based on sample RH_NRF24 by Mike Poublon
