I would try "encoding" that second "&" sign with "%26" - a lot of these passthru gateways do not like "&" signs.

Let us know if that works.

Invalid key might be from the "?" symbol. Try "%3F" in replace of the "?".

What is generating the string that is sent through the XBee?

BTW:

I am using this table to find the URL encode of these special chacters.

http://blooberry.com/indexdot/html/topics/urlencoding.htm

Use the "Code Points (Hex)" column.

A space is "20" hex, so you use "%20" in the URL.

Xbee Parameter:

The Packetization Timeout (RO) must be to 0 and you can send more than 72 characters
Everything OK
