Hi !
I am trying to save radio power consumption in Mica2 devices. I am calling the 
CC1000Control.BIASOff() and CC1000Control.BIASOn() functions repeatedly in a 
Timer. Whats confusing me is that the timer is slowed down when I call these 
functions. There is a delay of 200us in restoring the power but the timer repetition 
time is quite large.(The BiasOn function is followed by CC1000Control.RxMode() 
function). On the other hand when I use 'SetRFPower' function of the same interface 
there is no strange/wierd behaviour. Any ideas?
