If someone provides a standard gnuradio-format cfile of AIS you can run it
offline using a device argument of the form --args
"file=/path/to/your.cfile,rate=2048e3,repeat=true,throttle=true" in the
osmosdr block. Note the mandatory rate argument and optional repeat &

Unfortunately this is not the case. You still could use a higher sample
rate here (1024e3 or 2048e3) and then apply decimation/resampling until
you reach your required samplerate.
