Note: if you are going to use this module with an XBee-Pro XSC module, you have to physically remove the RSSI LED or the R4 resistor. The XSC has a different pinout compared to a normal XBee and this LED will drive the config pin low and cause the module to be unresponsive.

Just so you know, you cannot use this interface board with the new Digi XBee S3B module. The USB Explorer has an RSSI LED on Pin 6. On the S3B module, pin 6 is a config pin. The LED pulls that pin low and forces the module into a diagnostic mode. The only way to work around this is to physically remove the RSSI LED or resistor.
And honestly, there’s no need for an RSSI LED on these boards. You are not going to be able to tell the difference between a strong or weak signal using an LED.
No public wish lists :(
