When following the RF installation guide: http://ichilton.github.com/nanode/rf/build_guide.html

Could led to an error the SPI pins, please check the following table

Testing the RF

- Install jeelib (includes Ports and RF12b libraries) [[1]]


Run the demoRF12b, should get something like this:




[RF12demo.8] A i1 g212 @ 433 MHz

Available commands:

 <nn> i     - set node ID (standard node ids are 1..26)
              (or enter an uppercase 'A'..'Z' to set id)
 <n> b      - set MHz band (4 = 433, 8 = 868, 9 = 915)
 <nnn> g    - set network group (RFM12 only allows 212, 0 = any)
 <n> c      - set collect mode (advanced, normally 0)
 t          - broadcast max-size test packet, with ack
 ...,<nn> a - send data packet to node <nn>, with ack
 ...,<nn> s - send data packet to node <nn>, no ack
 <n> l      - turn activity LED on PB1 on or off
 <n> q      - set quiet mode (1 = don't report bad packets)

Remote control commands:

 <hchi>,<hclo>,<addr>,<cmd> f     - FS20 command (868 MHz)
 <addr>,<dev>,<on> k              - KAKU command (433 MHz)

Current configuration:

A i1 g212 @ 433 MHz
