Get/Put the software offset (OF)

The software offset can be changed from the preset value (550 s) to any value between 0 and 65536. This offset compensates for processing time during the reception of beacon messages. It depends on the processor speed.

Example (set offset to 500 s):
P OF 500<return>
OF 500

Note: This command only useful for user change the Cricket embedded software installed on the Cricket node. You should not have to change this parameter, and if you do, it has to be changed with extreme care.
