Hi Guys, Recently I got a 434MHz RF link connection pair from Spark Fun. I ordered them because I wanted to develop a distant temperature reader that sends the data to an Arduino UNO and the Arduino would log it.

RF Link Receiver - 4800bps (434MHz) - WRL-10532 - SparkFun Electronics - RF Link Receiver (434MHz)
Before they arrived, I was writing some code using the Virtual Wire library but then I realized that the code wasn’t compiling any more in the Arduino IDE v.1.4 but it did in earlier versions of Arduino such as the Arduino 0022 version. The latest version of the library was written back in 2010 so it’s clearly outdated. There were other examples of how to use the transmitter and receiver through the Serial port between two Arduino’s running at a baud rate of 2400bps. But unfortunately I don’t have two Arduino UNO’s.
As an alternative I would like to get some suggestions from you guys on how to write a simple code that would be compatible for Attiny85 (transmitter) hopefully communicable with the Arduino UNO (receiver). I was thinking of using the some Shiftout library that could be compatible with the Attiny85. If you know any sources or earlier posts similar to my subject please send it, I would be very happy! :%
