For the micaZ, you need to specify mica2 at the command line:

serial at COM1:mica2

The micaZ is different than all other platforms in that it uses 
different packet formats for the radio and UART. The UART packets are 
mica2 packets, hence the mica2 at the command line.

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
