NAME
       radio - console(4,n) radio application

SYNOPSIS
       radio [ options ]

DESCRIPTION
       radio is a interactive, ncurses-bases console(4,n) radio application.

OPTIONS
       -h     print a short help text.

       -d     enable debug output.

       -q     quit after processing the cmd line options, don't enter interac-
              tive 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/radio).

       -s     Do a scan for radio stations.

       -S     Same  as  above  + write(1,2) a radio.fmmap with the signal(2,7) for every
              frequency.  You can get  a  graph  for  it  with  gnuplot  (plot
              "radio.fmmap" w lin).

       -i     Scan,  write(1,2) a initial ~/.radio file(1,n) to stdout and quit.  So you
              can create a config(1,5) file(1,n) where you only have to fill in(1,8) the cor-
              rect  station  names later this way: "radio -i > ~/.radio".  See
              below for the config(1,5) file(1,n) syntax.

CONFIGURATION
       radio picks up station names and present stations from a  config(1,5)  file.
       It  can  parse  kradio (KDE radio app) config(1,5) files, therefore it first
       tries the usual KDE config(1,5) file(1,n) location: ~/.kde/share/config(1,5)/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(1,8)  both  sections
       are specified in(1,8) Hz.

KEYS
       X         exit(3,n,1 builtins)
       ESC,Q,E      mute and exit.
       up/down      inc/dec frequency
       pgup/pgdown  next/previous station.  This one uses the
                    stations from the config(1,5) file(1,n) 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.
