RF link

Hello, I recently purchased an RF Link 434 mhz transmitter and receiver from sparkfun as well as an ftdi basic 5v breakout. I hooked up a transmitter to an arduino board and the reciever to the breakout but for some reason I didn't get a signal to the breakout.  Why?

Good point. I don`t see why you couldn`t connect the RX unit data line to a parallel port and then write a program to convert to a data stream.
