Serial.Print repeats

I have an issue when i print to he serial port it repeats like five time also it make my LED on pin 5 flash in perfect sync with the tx pin and i cannot explain this for the life of me. I am modifying part of someone elses code and he prints Serial data his part works fin but whenever i put in a Serial.print statement it repeats. Any ideas?

Could you upload the code? Using the uber code function of course! (the # sign on the toolbar when you're writing a post)

It sounds like the code has it lighting up the led when it receives information, but it's hard to say.

Post the code and could probably offer a more helpful hand! :P
