» 900HP 04a: Send broadcast

This program shows how to send packets with XBee-900HP modules. Broadcast address (0x000000000000FFFF) is specified as destination address

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x MicroUSB wire
1 x XBee-PRO 900HP

Notes

- The battery has to be connected.
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v15
