I'm having trouble getting the openSPOT3 to play with my Anytone 878UV in regards to DMR SMS messaging.
I've read several forums on how to get SMS up and going on an Anytone 878UV. These are the things I've done so far.
- Went to BrandMeister and did the selfcare to set my radio type to Motorola.
- Made sure the Anyone was set to Motorola SMS.
- Went to the openSPOT3 DMR SMS CHAT page and set my source ID to my DMR ID.
- Setup my SMS settings via 262995 to, Active SMS: SHORT SMS Delay: 10.0 sec.
When I use the openSPOT3 with my DMR ID in source and the "handle messages" box checked, it works and I can send a simple WX to 262993 with the openSPOT3's DMR SMS Chat window and get a response with the weather report.
When I try unchecking the "handle messages" box and send an SMS with my radio, the openSPOT3 receives the MSG from the radio and forwards the message to the BrandMeister network fine. When I get the response from the network comes the problem. The openSPOT3 transmits the response from the network to my radio and my radio does show receiving, but an SMS never comes through on the radio. I thought this could be to an issue with the type of SMS format being used by the openSPOT3 and an incompatibility with the Anytone radio. I also thought that maybe the contact "262995" needed to be setup in my radio as a contact or a TG for my radio to "let it through". This reason stems from needing to setup a "receive group call list" with the openSPOT3's TG 9 so that I can hear the reports on my radio no matter what "channel" I'm on with my radio. Also to check the IP address and battery status of the openSPOT3 with just a call to that TG on my radio . I did try setting up the 262995 on my radio as a digital contact and as a TG with no change.
I enjoy using the DMR SMS on the openSPOT3's DMR SMS chat, but would love to get this issue figured out.
Thanks in advance for help getting this going!
