[Tinyos-help] Over-the-Air-Programming

"There is no response from the base station" means the MoteConfig has
not been able to receive heartbeat messages from the base station.
Several questions:
1. Which MIB board are you using and what COM port is assigned to it?
2. Are you using any USB-Serial adapter?
3. Which application did you program into the base station Mote? (one
that is attached to the MIB board)?
4. Before attempting to OTAP, were you able to receive/view data in
MoteView from the remote Motes and verify communication?

I am trying to programme the MicaZ motes over-the-air, because OEM
Edition must be soldered to use it (and it is always difficult to get
things working as desired the first time). I have followed all the steps
that are explained in "MoteConfig User's Manual" document
df), but my base station does not detect the turned-on motes (paragraph
5.2, page 16).
The message it shows is "There is no response from the base station.
Please check your connections, verify that switch SW2 is set to the OFF
position and click Search again". 
I have checked that switch, the COM ports (they seem to be working fine
because I can programme the Motes normally) but I get the same message
over and over again. Possibly, I am doing something dumb, so could
anybody help me solve this problem?

Thanks in advance,

Asier Arruti
