There's a lesson here:   DOCUMENTATION

Juan expected/assumed one thing, the CAN-Do! widget was something else.  
Other teams will go through exactly the same issue.  SO, it appears we 
need to add some documentation to each WIDGET in terms of serial number, 
address, and probably a handful of other things I don't know about. 

Let's learn from this experience.

Juan, thanks to you and your team for perservering.

Stephen, thanks for your prompt support on a short fuse.

This kind of response and mutual support is exemplary, and what it will 
take to get Eagle on orbit.

Thanks & very 73,
