Didn't figure so.

The CoCo's +5 is rock solid.

At 3.3v maybe but Aaron's was not at that level.

What does RED LED indicate?

Ok, I have now tested it with a lab power supply set at 8 volts - there's  
no difference at all when using two HC-05's as a BT serial connection -  
one powered by the server's USB port and the other powered by a lab power  

I have also tried a different CoCo3 as well - same results.
