8 hour tests

So we're down to only testing radio, probably until October. Got a few crashes with the PIC receive even though it was supposed to be resetting the registers. Got a few crashes with the ground station XBee even though it was spacing apart the activity. Looks like reset & permanent configuration are going to be required. Never had this problem with the airborne Xbee.

It seems a number of circumstances may cause an XBee lockup, like using a high powered RF source nearby, using a microwave oven nearby, using the module for many hours, a stray packet coming out simultaneously with a sent packet. The reset pin seems to be the only solution & that means hard flashing the XBees with configuration, not fun.
