SYNOPSIS

radio [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

radio is a interactive, ncurses-bases console radio application.

OPTIONS

-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 obvious reasons ...
-m mute radio.
-f freq
  tune the specified radio frequency (and unmute the radio).
-c dev specify radio device (default is /dev/radio0).
-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.

CONFIGURATION

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.

KEYS

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.
