Using RFM02 Transmitter with Arduino Uno

I am working on a project for my senior design course and my team and I are trying to interface with an RFM02 transmistter by HopeRF. There are very few resources online to help us. We are having a very hard time trying to figure out just how to send some arbitrary data and analyze it from the transmitter before moving on the working with the RFM01 receiver module that goes along with it.

We have gone through the data sheet multiple times trying to use the example code they have listed in there but we haven’t been able to get it to work other than the initialization values. None of us are experienced enough with coding to really know what all of the code is doing (we’re electrical engineers). We are also trying to use SPI.

Any help would be appreciated. I have attached the programming guide datasheet for the RFM02 Transmitter.

Quit wasting your time and use another radio. There is absolutely nothing to be gained by using such a poorly documented chip.
