» 802 06b: Receive broadcast

This program shows how to receive packets with XBee-802.15.4 modules. The packets received were broadcast

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote PRO
1 x Battery
1 x MiniUSB wire
1 x XBee-802.15.4 module

Notes

* This example belongs to a two-code example. This is the receiving part.
* Both XBee modules must be configured with the same network parameters (PANID, channel, encryption mode)
