Here is a custom rtl_airband.conf config file for Broadcastify server and local Icecast server if you have it setup in your Raspberry Pi unit.

 +
 
 +
 
 +
Else you can set "disable = true;" if you do not need that section profile enabled. Otherwise set "disabled = false;" if you need that section profile to be enabled for active usage.

RTLSDR-Airband or rtl_airband receives analog radio voice channels and produces audio streams which can be routed to various outputs.


Download: https://github.com/szpajder/RTLSDR-Airband


Broadcastify Fully Supports RTLSDR-Airband or rtl_airband.


RTLSDR-Airband or rtl_airband - User's Manual: https://github.com/szpajder/RTLSDR-Airband/wiki


RTLSDR-Airband or rtl_airband support multiple frequency channel scanning features.


Here is a custom rtl_airband.conf config file for Broadcastify server and local Icecast server if you have it setup in your Raspberry Pi unit.


Else you can set "disable = true;" if you do not need that section profile enabled. Otherwise set "disabled = false;" if you need that section profile to be enabled for active usage.
