I have a max232 setup on a bread board with an atmega8 chip, i have got it to work fine and do various things like turn on LEDs and manipulate data i send to it through the com port etc so i know it works fine.

I connected my EM-406 module to my max232 chip, and this is what it spits out.

Sorry, i have worked it out.

My microcontroller was still connected and it was editing the information.

All working good, just time to get it close to a window for a fix.
