Hi,
Does someone use CH_PD pin on ESP8266 (ESP-01 module) in AVR project to enable/disable transmission for power reduction? I use ESPeasy firmware for ESP but it sending too frequently and drain battery very fast that solar cell can't recharge it. So, as it is weather station it is sufficient to transmit to remote server once in 30 minutes.

(BASCOM-AVR version : 2.0.7.8 )

Found a very nice article about the power save mode. Combination of hardware and software.

Have fun
