    151157 * If no AT commands are working, verify the modem is enabled using the FTDI CBUS GPIOs as described in the Turning on Modem section on this wiki page.
    152158 * Be sure the satellite antenna has a clear view of the sky, check the signal strength with the AT+CSQ
    153159 * If the module hangs/resets during a transmit verify your SBC can provide the needed power to the device. When transmitting the modem can draw over 6.5W which can exceed the limits of some SBCs. Gateworks SBCs have been designed to handle large power transients such as these.
     160 * Consider disabling the !ModemManager service if you are experiencing issues when issuing AT commands to the modem.
