Yes it can be, if you are not using serial comm in your sketch.

I think you can do this too:

Code: [Select]

// in void loop ...

Serial.end();
pinMode (D1, OUTPUT);
// whatever you're doing
:
:
// then turn serial back on
Serial.begin(9600);
:


If you are using Serial, the receiver may be a little confused about what be coming out.
Maybe send a coordination message indicating "stop lstening for 500ms while I send junky serial data out!"
