I paired up with BJ to get one signal from one arduino to the other. BJ had the following code on his arduino:
int reciever = 2;
int LED = 13;
//val = digitalRead(reciever);
I just had blink programmed on my arduino. This allowed my arduino to pass over a signal to BJ's arduino telling it whether or not my LED was blinking. If it was lit up, the arduino would send a signal telling BJ's arduino to light up an LED, otherwise it would send a signal to make sure it was off. BJ's arduino would also output to the screen whether it was high(lit up) or low(off).
