XBees can't handle asynchronous UART


No-one ever ran an XBee in 2 threads before, we doubted it would work, & it didn't work after all. The XBee UART appears to freeze if U send data while it's sending. Running the XBee in 1 thread & so far it hasn't frozen anymore. Unfortunately U have no way of knowing if the XBee is about to send a stray packet just before U send something.

Like we said, humans R fascinated by sending more data farther. Did try the Airtronics receiver again with the HiTec transmitter & it was horrible. It only got 2000 bits/sec & was pretty unreliable. Maybe it has to be matched with the Airtronics transmitter or maybe the 80's weren't the Jesus decade.

Next, U may be able to get 8000 bits/sec over 72Mhz but it does reduce the range. Knew it in 2006 & rediscovered it again. Fortunately with the modulation routines all using hardware, the bitrate with the 2006 settings is up to 4700.

So today we learned those fixer uppers Northwest North Idaho really were worth $1 million & those ocean front condos in Phoenix really were ocean front condos. Can't wait for the Social Security Mae bailout, & the Barrack Mac bailout.

The funk has changed names again. Now he's Uba 'Ack. Uba 'ack, the ultimate savings & loanama with a free porshama for every cat. Pretty soon he'll figure out how to get it to 1 syllable 4 U lions.
