echo them out to the serial device... 

First.. figure out your "message":
	$ echo -e '\x54\x57\x45\x45\x4B\x53'
	TWEEKS

Then point it where you want it:
	$ echo -e '\x54\x57\x45\x45\x4B\x53' > /dev/ttyS0
	(COM1 in PC weenie lingo)

This what you're looking for?

If you need to ref your ascii table.. see:
	$ man ascii

Handy old time man page..
