Need xbee system in a hurry

Greetings.

We need xbee to communicate btwn Arduino uControllers (uno/mega)

As I understand we need:

2pcs xbee shields
2 pcs xbee with antenna (1500 meter reach).

1 pcs programming card for the Xbee.

Can someone please point out where to buy theese parts and to a library that works?
I notice sparkfun doesnt sell XBEE serie 1 anymore.

Will Serie 2 work with existing xbshields and available libraries?

thank you

regards

You get the XBees Series 2 almost everywhere where you also get other Arduino stuff.

In fact to join two Arduinos you almost need no library if you use transparent mode, while API mode is preferred for a sophisticated packet handling.

To connect both (UNO/ XBees) and relay data it just needs some lines of code and maybe the use of the SoftSerial library.

Sure they do. http://www.sparkfun.com/categories/223 Out of stock is a temporary thing.
