How do I put the RN4020 module into an Observer role to receive advertising data packet?

Set up one module as a peripheral and the other as a central. Issue the command ‘J,1’ on the Central, followed by the command ‘F’ . On the Peripheral, issue the ‘N’ command followed by the data you want to advertise. Issue the ‘A’ command on the peripheral to begin advertising.
