Using a parallax RFID reader with sample code

Hello, today I powered up my Parallax RFID reader for the first time (yay). So I decided to load the sample code found here -> http://arduino.cc/playground/Learning/PRFID and try to see if it would read the two RFID badges that came with the reader.

I am pretty sure I hooked everything up correctly. The "SOUT" wire is going to the RX on the Arduino. I wired the "AENABLE" to the TX on the Arduino. The LED is lighting up on the Parallax RFID Reader, so I know it's getting power.

I opened the serial monitor for the sketch set the baud rate to 2400, and was hoping to see some lines printed out in the serial console, but no dice. Any thoughts?

From that page:

Arduino RX to RFID TX Arduino GND to RFID GND Arduino Digital pin 2 to RFID enable Arduino +5V to RFID Vcc pin.

Note that Enable goes to Pin 2, not to TX.

Thanks dude, that did the trick. I'll try reading a little closer next time (-.-)
