Adafruit RFM95 W breakout boad

So not a fan of python and had trouble figuring out how to get adafruit circuitpython thingy running. As usual there were lots of red messages telling me it didn’t work - which I can tell because it didn’t work. Any changes I make give the same message in different words.

Ran the c code from the original radiohead and that works between my two boards. Great! Now trying to get a driver running on top of pigpio and having troubles. Thought I should be able to run RadioHead on the server and then send a message to it from my code on a client. Just nothing getting through. Anyone had any experience debugging the RFM95? Is there a way to find out what the ic thinks it is doing?
