Lora expLoRaBLE upload problems

I think you are right, I just connected my Qwiic devices to an old Arduino nano 33 BLE and it worked with no problems, the only reason I bought the Lora ExpLoRaBLE board was for LoRa, but I think I am better off returning my boards and using an external radio with my Arduino as I am on a tight schedule, many thanks for all the help you have given me thus far and goodbye for now.
