I have a pair of Zigduinos and soldered the Arduino headers and the RF connector. For the RF connector I tried to pay the most attention to the center pin when soldering. Are the other pins on the connector just for holding the connector on the board or should I also try to get a good solder joint for those as well?
I then tried to set up the ZigduinoRadio as an initial test of the Zigduinos. I'm using Arduino 1.0 and I followed the instructions to get the Zigduino 1.0 software and moved the parts into my Arduino installation and I got the latest ZigduinoRadio zip file from the GoogleCode. I tried the ZigduinoRadioExample and installed the firmware on each Zigduino, but the example didn't work. So I then tried the SpectrumAnalyzer on each board and I always get the worst value for the Energy Detection Level with -90 and RSSI with -91. I have both boards powered when I type something on the serial port. I'm not sure if this is a sign of a bad soldering job on my part. Is there something else I can try?
