Dear all,

I saw an application called "High Frequency RSSI Sampling Application" 
written by Phil Levis on the 
I have a query about the purpose of writing this application for 
measuring CC2420 RSSI readings. Is the RSSI value returned from the RSSI 
field unreliable? If it is reliable for research measurement, what is 
the point for writing another programme to retrieve RSSI value?

I also tried to read the RSSI register value, and compare it with the 
values obtained from RSSI field. I found they were different, could 
anyone help me with the explanation for this deviation please?

The TinyOS I am currently use is TinyOS 1.1.15.

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
Ruoshui Liu
