Hi Pete,

I'd love to put up any code/library and suggestions you have for the
Arduino community.  This is a VERY popular subject. The page:
has had 4773 views in the first 7 DAYS of April, and 70440 in 2014
and (checking) 159986 in 2013.

This is NOT a brag.. those are people who want to successfully use
nRF24L01 based radios because of their low cost and high functionality. I
want to help them and I want to update and add to the information there on

Pete, let me know if you need some hardware to test with.
