The nice thing of both modules is that you can play with the variable resistors, so that you can change the frequency and shift a bit. I hate calculating and testing all kinds of resistors that never exist in the frequency that you want. So, can’t be easier.
So you can just hook this up to any computer or perhipial with a USB port. Then you use some terminal or whatever to talk to it, and it will immediatelly spit out that information over your frequency.

Kinda works like an xbee as well; you just send it some bits and it will spit out those bits.

Downloads, my favorite section.
Yeah so you can download the PCB Eagle files right over here:
