bluetooth radios - hc-05 hc-06 BlueSMiRF Roving Networks RN-42

I recently purchased a bluetooth module JY-MCU V1.04 which takes 3.6-6V. very simple to use, provide the voltage, it defaults discoverable, pair pin 1234, connect, go. short the tx&rx pins, and all your terminal output gets echo'd back to you.
