UCB Test Instructions modified

I just added a little note to the Third stage test instructions for the UCB, to deal with the issue that tests 3 to 6 are for StepperController boards not for raw UCBs. It reads:

> Please Note: The tests that follow are specific to Stepper
> Controller boards and so need P3, R10 and R11 in place to

It would be better to remove tests 3 to 6 from the UCB page and add them to the Stepper Controller page, and to more fully document use of poke... but at least this is a start.
