Post Turning IR Link into 1200Mhz Beacon?
I was just reading and discovered the IR Link is capable of becoming a beacon. I was wondering if anyone has tried or knows how this can be accomplished?

Well, it would be a very weak beacon, but I think continuously sending IR messages would work.

Code should be there. It's NXC, but should be fairly trivial to modify.
