Hi Peter,

I am using raw IEEE 802.15.4 frames, with no CSMA, no Autoack. I also
have a sniffer running that shows the packets! Also I am able to receive
some of the frames. While I have no problem between Skys there is a
problem with our board/the at86rf233. I try to send data as quickly as
possible at the moment. Introducting a delay helps, but it seems like a
bit more complicated to me, as the other directions work!

Best Regards,
