I'm not sure.  I just picked them up from the UPS depot and I'll hook them
up to a scope.  For right now I've got to just turn it on and
off... simple switching.  Once that's done, I'll try to hook it up to my
two zorin HC11 boards and bypass the RS-232 converter... I'll see if I've
got some time this weekend to try it out.

BTW, some guys downstairs are working on little radios for serial and
non-serial communications for an engineering project course I'm going to
TA this semester.  It should be ready in the next two weeks ... I'll let
you all know if the plans become available.
