Master Arduino Sketch:
/* YourDuino SoftwareSerialExample1
   - Connect to another Arduino running "YD_SoftwareSerialExampleRS485_1Remote"
   - Connect this unit Pins 10, 11, Gnd
   - Pin 3 used for RS485 direction control
   - To other unit Pins 11,10, Gnd  (Cross over)
   - Open Serial Monitor, type in top window. 
   - Should see same characters echoed back from remote Arduino

Remote Arduino Sketch:
/* YourDuino SoftwareSerialExample1Remote
   - Used with YD_SoftwareSerialExampleRS485_1 on another Arduino
   - Remote: Receive data, loop it back...
   - Connect this unit Pins 10, 11, Gnd
   - To other unit Pins 11,10, Gnd  (Cross over)
   - Pin 3 used for RS485 direction control   
   - Pin 13 LED blinks when data is received
