VHF Config check please
« on: December 30, 2021, 09:50:51 PM »
Can a expirianced user tell me if this airband setup is correct ?
Does this scan 4 frequency's from the same dongle? 

Code: [Select]
This is a minimalistic configuration file for rtl-airband
# Please change frequencies that you will use and other settings.
#
# Note: this configuration will use your second dongle attached
# to you raspberry, not the first one!
#
# index = 0     => First dongle
# index = 1     => Second dongle


devices:
({
  type = "rtlsdr";
  index = 1;
  gain =28;
  correction = 0;
  mode = "scan";
  channels:
  (
    {
          #squelch = 35;  # Uncomment to set squelch manually
      freqs = ( 118105000, 118280000, 118955000, 119225000 );
      afc=1;
      labels = ( "Schiphol Tower (Runway 18R – 36L)", "Schiphol Tower (Runway 18C – 36C / 09 – 27)", "Schiphol Tower (Runway 06 – 24)", "Schiphol Tower (Runway 18L – 36R)" );
      outputs: (
        { type = "icecast"; server = "audio.rb24.com"; port = 8000;
          mountpoint = "EXTVHF00000A";
          name = "Schiphol Tower (Runway 18R – 36L)";
          description = "Runway 18R - 36L";
          genre = "ATC";
          username = "XXXX";
          password = "XXXX";
          send_scan_freq_tags = true;        },
 {
          type = "icecast";
          server = "audio.rb24.com";
          port = 8000;
          mountpoint = "EXTVHF00000B";
          name = "Schiphol Tower (Runway 18C – 36C / 09 – 27)";
          genre = "ATC";
          username = "XXXX";
          password = "XXXX";
          send_scan_freq_tags = true;
        },
{
          type = "icecast";
          server = "audio.rb24.com";
          port = 8000;
          mountpoint = "EXTVHF00000C";
          name = "Schiphol Tower (Runway 06 – 24)";
          genre = "ATC";
          username = "XXXX";
          password = "XXXX";
          send_scan_freq_tags = true;
        },
{
          type = "icecast";
          server = "audio.rb24.com";
          port = 8000;
          mountpoint = "EXTVHF00000D";
          name = "Schiphol Tower (Runway 18L – 36R)";
          genre = "ATC";
          username = "XXXX";
          password = "XXXX";
          send_scan_freq_tags = true;
        }


                # If you need more outputs, put here

      );
    }
  );
 }
);


Thanks in advance !

NO

Use Multichannel mode!

Something like this
Code: [Select]
  disable = false;
  type = "rtlsdr";
  serial = "00000050"; #RadarboxVHF
  gain = 36.4;
 #Gain values: 19.7 20.7 22.9 25.4 28.0 29.7 32.8 33.8 36.4 37.2 38.6 40.2 42.1 43.4 43.9 44.5 48.0 49.6
  correction = 0;
  centerfreq = 130.25;
  mode = "multichannel";
  sample_rate = 1.6;
  buffers = 5;
  channels:
  (
    {
#squelch_threshold = 7;  # Uncomment to set squelch manually
      freq =  130.1;
      labels = ( "LPBJ-App" );
      outputs: (
        {
disable = false;
type = "icecast";
server = "127.0.0.1";
port = 8000;
mountpoint = "LPBJ-APP";
name = "LPBJ-APP";
genre = "ATC";
username = "source";
password = "pass";
description = "Beja Approach";
send_scan_freq_tags = true;
},
# If you need more outputs, put here
{
disable = false;  
type = "icecast";
server = "audio.rb24.com";
         port = 8000;
         mountpoint = "EXTVHF000138";
         name = "LPBJ-APP";
         genre = "ATC";
         username = "email";
         password = "pass";
description = "Beja Approach";
send_scan_freq_tags = true;
},
# If you need more outputs, put here
{
disable = false;
type = "file";
directory = "/var/www/html/vhf/LPBJ-APP";
filename_template = "LPBJ-APP";
continuous = false;
split_on_transmission = false;
append = false;
}
      );
    },
    {
#squelch_threshold = 7;  # Uncomment to set squelch manually
      freq =  130.4;
      labels = ( "LPBJ-TWR" );
      outputs: (
        {
disable = false;
type = "icecast";
server = "127.0.0.1";
port = 8000;
mountpoint = "LPBJ-TWR";
name = "LPBJ-TWR";
genre = "ATC";
username = "email";
password = "pass";
description = "Beja Tower";
send_scan_freq_tags = true;
},
# If you need more outputs, put here
{
disable = false;  
type = "icecast";
server = "audio.rb24.com";
         port = 8000;
         mountpoint = "EXTVHF000505";
         name = "LPBJ-TWR";
         genre = "ATC";
         username = "email";
         password = "pass";
description = "Beja Tower";
send_scan_freq_tags = true;
},
# If you need more outputs, put here
{
disable = false;
type = "file";
directory = "/var/www/html/vhf/LPBJ-TWR";
filename_template = "LPBJ-TWR";
continuous = false;
split_on_transmission = false;
append = false;
}

You have rtl_airband or rtl-airband-rb??
