#3 Possibility to use external radios



I would find it useful to use external radios with Kradio. There were some scanner radios available, which can be remote controlled thrue a simple serial connection.

The sound output of this radio can be connected to the sound card.

    Hi! Since kradio is a bit more alive again, I'd like to ask if you could provide some example code how to control such a radio card. With that, a plugin can be realized quite easily.

    BR, Martin

    Probably, the most portable way to control radios is the open-source library Hamlib (Which is on sourceforge).

    If needed, I could provide some help for hamlib. It is usable as a shareable library or a server process.

    Yes, Hamlib would be the right place to support such radio/scanners.
    Are the drivers part of Video4Linux or are they in an external shared library?

    For your information, Hamlib already supports V4L devices through model ID 2601 (in the tuner backend).
    Let me know whether it works as expected for you, since I don't own such radio.
