The DCU-1 should do something like this - they have 
in and out serial ports on the boxes so you can 
chin them together.  When I was beta tesing 
them I suggested that Hy-Gain should add addressing
to the command set - I am pretty sure they did.

So I would suggeest that the Rotor-EZ guys use the
same command formats as the DCU-1 for this feature.
