Prepare the header strip:

Cut the strip to length if necessary. It will be easier to solder if you insert it into a breadboard - long pins down

Add the breakout board:

Place the breakout board over the pins so that the short pins poke through the breakout pads

And Solder!

Be sure to solder all pins for reliable electrical contact.

(For tips on soldering, be sure to check out our Guide to Excellent Soldering).
You're done! Check your solder joints visually and continue onto the antenna
An antenna is required! We provide a 1meter long wire but you can also use a shorter or longer piece as desired.
Strip a few mm from the end
Hook the exposed wire end into the ANT hole
Solder it in!
