Message in Spanish characters being Delivered in Chinese

Good Day

I have worked so much to figure out where am i getting wrong with playsms with kannel i have changed the encoding so many times in my configuration to UTF-8 ,IS0 8859-1 but everytime i send spnish characters they are being delivered in Chinese.Can someone assist me please.
I have changed the kannel/fn.php ais suggested in the forum

if ($unicode) $unicode = core_detect_unicode($sms_msg);

    if ($unicode) {
            if (function_exists('mb_convert_encoding')) {
                    $sms_msg = mb_convert_encoding($sms_msg, "UTF-8", "auto");
                    $URL .= "&charset=UTF-16BE";
            $URL .= "&coding=2";

Also below is my kannel smsc config:

group = smsc
smsc = smpp
smsc-id = SMSC01
smsc-admin-id = SMSCadmin
host =
port = 5019
smsc-username = USSD01
smsc-password = MalUss01
system-type = SMPP
transceiver-mode = true
alt-charset = UTF-8

There is no need to change in any file. As per my experience
We need to add some parameter with http API when sending SMS
