Getting the Space Rocks to talk to each other

Configuring the XBees.

Am using the Digi XBee wireless connectivity kit to allow the Space Rocks to communicate with each other. Following the tutorials on Sparkfun, I have managed to get them talking via X-CTU. Which is a good start.

And these two are also now communicating with each other.
