Send SMS to mobile

Wed Oct 13, 2021 1:34 am


I have search some forum topic's but could not find an answer to my problem.
It is quiet simple: I want to sent an SMS by script.

I use the following code:

#Local variable
:local PHONE1 "06xxxxxxxx";
:local INTERFACE "lte1";

#bericht naar SMS
:log info $INTERFACE;
:log info $PHONE1;
/tool sms send port=$INTERFACE phone-number=$PHONE1 message="Hallo All";

:log info "SMS sent";

Whats going wrong here?

The correct syntax for MikroTik modules onboard (not USB or others), for example RBwAPR-2nD + R11e-LTE
/tool sms
send lte1 phone-number=00000000 message="xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

The message must be on General GSM 7 encoding alphabet format, for example "ążźćęłóńÀÁÈÉÌÍÒÓÙÚ" etc. are unsupported

more detail about alphabet:
