the firmware update I've taken care of after seeing that there was nothing to "read" from them.
I have a pair of USB boards, the second one was to for a back up. Is what I need to know for the configuration in the .bmp file on the CD that came with the WRAPS kit from AMSAT?
A friend with a 3D printer has offered to make me an enclosure for the USB adapter & XBee, having had the unfortunate experience of having the table and gear dumped into a puddle by a burst of wind during a thunderstorm at Field Day years back I now make more effort to protect things.

The XBee modules need to be programmed in order to work together.
Hopefully you have a USB board that you can plug an XBee module into, and plug into your computer, in order to (1) update the firmware (just a good practice in general) and (2) configure the two of them to work together.
You'll need a USB board to connect one of the XBees to your computer to use it for tracking. Same board for programming them.

It might be in the documentation on the CD, being so close to having my WRAPS working I'd rather not mess anything up at this point. The mechanical construction is done, although I have the box turned on edge so the PC board will mount sideways, I can work with that. The elevation and azimuth motions are centered up and move quietly and freely (about 22mA each motor operating continuously with no load at 9V). The XBee modules files have been uploaded, but I haven't taken mounted one on the WRAPS board yet, as I haven't done any further configuration to the modules. Are there changes that need to be made to the XBee module files before installing them on the WRAPS board? Are there things I should check or look for before final assembly and testing?
