radio - console radio application
radio [ options ]
radio is a interactive, ncurses-bases console radio application.
-h print a short help text. -d enable debug output. -q quit after processing the cmd line options, don't enter interactive ncurses mode. Only useful together with other options for obvi- ous reasons ... -m mute radio. -f freq tune the specified radio frequency (and unmute the radio). -c dev specify radio device (default is /dev/radio). -s Do a scan for radio stations. -S Same as above + write a radio.fmmap with the signal for every frequency. You can get a graph for it with gnuplot (plot "radio.fmmap" w lin). -i Scan, write a initial ~/.radio file to stdout and quit. So you can create a config file where you only have to fill in the correct station names later this way: "radio -i > ~/.radio". See below for the config file syntax.
radio picks up station names and present stations from a config file. It can parse kradio (KDE radio app) config files, therefore it first tries the usual KDE config file location: ~/.kde/share/config/kradiorc. Failing that, radio tries ~/.radio (which makes things a bit easier for people who don't use kradio). The format looks like this: # KDE Config File [Buttons] 1=95800000 2=91400000 [Stations] 100600000=Hundert,6 95800000=Radio eins 102600000=Fritz 94300000=r.s.2 91400000=Berliner Rundfunk The [Buttons] section can have up to eight entries. That are the present stations, they get mapped to F1-F8. The [Stations] section maps frequencies to station names. The frequencies in both sections are specified in Hz.
X exit ESC,Q,E mute and exit. up/down inc/dec frequency pgup/pgdown next/previous station. This one uses the stations from the config file by default. When started with the -s option these keys will cycle througth the stations found during the scan. F1-F8, 1-8 preset buttons. Ctrl+L redraw screen.
