Given the multitude and variability of online radio receivers, the pavlova dispatcher finds an available receiver slot in the desired area, based on live probing, and redirects your web browser to it, for your listening pleasure.
There is a pavlova instance hosted at http://s.printf.cc/. It accepts two parameters: the area code, and the tuning string. The tuning string is optional. For example:
- http://s.printf.cc/#p/6400am will redirect to an available receiver in the Pacific ("p") area, tuned to 6400 kHz AM;
- http://s.printf.cc/#m/9450usb will likewise redirect to a receiver in the Mediterranean ("m") area tuned to 9450 kHz USB;
- http://s.printf.cc/#n/ will find and redirect to an available receiver in North America ("n"), but without tuning it to any specific frequency.
The URL format is pretty flexible, so http://s.printf.cc/?p/6400am works too or even http://s.printf.cc/p/6400am could be supported, although the preferred way is using a URL fragment (the #-part), because it doesn't need to be sent to the server.
Hosting your own instance of pavlova dispatcher is very easy: you just need to clone, link and/or copy the files, and serve them as static content over HTTP. You can also use your personal local version instead. You can fully customize your receivers list and dispatching rules, just edit the configuration file. Optionally, you can add extra matching rules to the configuration of your web server to support advanced URL formats.
If you want to give us feedback about a particular KiwiSDR receiver which you think provides a great reception and deserves a better place, don't hesitate! You can also suggest support for a new area group if you have a use for it.
