hello. I really like this app, but I had to modify 2 lines to make it working with (german) special chars:

in function PCSMS.sendSMS line 124, pcsms.pc:
added after string.strip:
msg = msg.encode("utf8")

in line 134,
replaced smsMsg = fis.readline()
with smsMsg = unicode(fis.readline(), "utf8")

in line 138,
replaced messaging.sms_send(addr, unicode(smsMsg))
with messaging.sms_send(addr, smsMsg)

I don't know exactly why, but so it worked for me ;-)

Thanks for dropping in.

I can help you with the background for how to do it. But with building the circuits, I might have to search around my self. As have not fiddled with electronics for a long time.
