SBDCTL Quick Check

From Technologic Systems Manuals

To sanity-check the TS-IRIDIUM without transmitting messages over the satellite network, the IRIDIUM module includes a data transfer function, copying data from the transmit buffer to the receive buffer. The sbdctl utility can be used to exercise this function:
