Ron, just a note, why not just bitbang directly from NN/SACK the Bt
module instead of using (propeller/arduino/whatever) in the middle?
BTW Thanks for your "other" project research :) you bring awesome
stuff that can refresh ideas, for me is more than ok you post here
such discoveries here, no need to create other list.
