Ah forgot the link.

Don't forget to checkout the cc2520 branch.

I found that RadioAlarm.wait() never triggers an alarm and therefore the message is not sent. I did a test and found that the only RadioAlarm which can be triggered is the one in XXXDriverLayerP (in my case, CC2520DriverLayerP). I found that it's wired to the alarm in platform's HPL code (HplCC2520C.nc, AlarmMicro16C()). The RadioAlarm in other places seem not working. I don't know whether I miss something since my code looks similar to the RF230 one. Is there any trick to make this work?
