The following motes will be deployed at the bao and ehs sites:

After logging into a DSM, use the md or mote_dump commands to display the mote data.  The first parameter is the DSM id, either 7 for bao or 8 for ehs.  

md 7

This will show the currently reporting radio motes, as an ID, followed by binary jibberish.  If all motes at a site are reporting, you should see ID1, ID2 and ID17 at bao, and ID4, ID10 and ID8 at ehs, as shown n the above table. The power motes are not displayed with md or mote_dump.

Then to see the calibrated data for a given mote, enter its id after the DSM id (and a comma). For example, to display the regular soil mote on the bao:

md 7,1

The reporting rates are low, you may have to wait up to 10 seconds to see the data, or longer if there is radio interference.
