MRF24J40MA 2.4ghz transciever


Senior Member
in light of some of the recent discussion ragarding wireless modules their cheapness vs reliability vs range i'm curious to know if anyone has used/played with the MRF24J40MA module by microchip

the datasheet claims 250kbps with a 400m range
the module dimensions are 17.8mm X 27.9mm which is smaller than the aussie 50 cent coin..... (or two 28x's side by side)
the best part is it uses an spi interface instead of a pain in the neck serial interface ,
i've already got 2 on order, has anyone else played with them before?
