Welcome to Airchecks DX! This is the place for you to get current Washington, DC area FM and Television airchecks. I specialize in CHR, Modern Rock, Urban, and Dance station airchecks from Washington, DC and around the world, but I also have many airchecks of format switches and other formats like Classic Rock. Click on 'Collection' to view my collection recorded on cassette tapes, minidiscs, and CDs. Also in the Collection section I have my local television newscasts from around the USA and the world recorded on VHS tape with their logo next to each listing to better help you choose what newscast you want. This website is also the place for you to see how DX is in Northern Virginia. Check out my DX logs and my TV screenshots that are on this website!

(5/12/03) Still on break! At the time I have at least three trades going on...I will have them done by mid-week hopefully, but I won't be accepting trades until sometime next week...check back here often for an update..





:: Chesapeake, VA (Norfolk/Virginia Beach, VA DMA) Mid-2003.
:: Myrtle Beach, SC (Myrtle Beach/Florence/Coastal NC DMA) Summer 2003.
  NEW! Not confirmed as of 4/21/03





Changes at DC101 5/1/03
Modern Rock 101.1 WWDC-FM Washington has a new voiceguy as of 5/1/03. They still have the female 'voicegirl' which they have been using since 1998 for some jingles, but the main male voiceguy has changed. While listening to the station today I have noticed that there are still some remenants of the old voiceguy, especially on promotional commercials and some simple "DC101"s said in-between a song. I have also noticed a new top of the hour legal ID said by the new voiceguy, but at the same time at different hours today I have heard the legal ID they were using up until today (with the girl saying WWDC-FM and the old voiceguy saying "Washington"), and an even older one the station has used circa 1999 without the voicegirl. As it is with most stations, it appears the new voiceguy will slowly be phased in.



New Spring Break 2003 Airchecks & More 4/21/03
I just returned from my 11-day trip to the Tampa area. Check out the Updates page in the black frame to the left (linked next to the last updated date) to see what I have added to this site from this trip. Due to problems with the top logo of this website being too big on the computer I used in Tampa which had a different screen resolution than mine, I have made the graphic smaller.

Two Future Trips Planned 4/21/03
While in Tampa this past week I learned that in a few months I will be taking a weekend trip to Chesapeake, VA (Norfolk DMA), and in the Summer of 2003 I will most likely spend a week in Myrtle Beach, SC! More info on these two trips once I get the information.

New website design/logo once again 3/28/03
Yes, for the second time this month this website has a new design. I also have given an updated, more normal looking logo this website for 2003. Let me know what you think of this new website and logo design by clicking here. I have minimal graphics on this new design of this website, even less than before, that should improve page loading times.

War with Iraq...New recordings 3/25/03
As you know we are at war with Iraq, and in the TV Airchecks part of the Collection linked to the left I have various war coverage tapes recorded from different news sources.

D
C & Baltimore radio changes 3/16/03
WXYV 105.7 in Baltimore has changed to "Live 105.7" with a hot talk format, with Howard Stern in the mornings. Here in DC WASH 97.1 has changed their name from "Soft Rock 97.1 Wash FM" to plain "97.1 Wash FM", and they have a new logo on their website. Rumors are that WWZZ 104.1 will pick up the "Soft Rock" name that 97.1 gave up, but it is not confirmed. By the way, if you check out 97.1's new logo in the tapeables page to the left, you will see their new logo is very similar to 104's logo.

9 WUSA gets new voiceguy for newscasts 3/9/03
Very recently 9 WUSA gets a new demonic-sounding voiceguy for all of their newscasts and voice-overs.


New, faster website design 3/2/03
Once again, Airchecks/DX has a new design. A website viewer via the Radio-Info.com Airchecks board has told me that my older website design was taking too long to load due to graphics. I apologize for this...since I have cable internet I have no way of knowing if a design takes too long to load. I hope the new design is faster...send me an email if you think it is still too slow...just keep in mind I have to have some pictures on the site!

All trading resumed as of 2/3/03 2/3/03
I have resumed trading, please read my trading status for more information.

I am able to record on MDs again and copy them 2/3/03
This morning I took out my broken MD recorder (the last time I used it was in late September 2002 when it clicked and took more than five minutes to preform normal functions such as fast fowarding, pausing, track marks, etc.) since I had nothing else to do, and I was amazed to find out that it worked perfectly. And, I unpacked my stereo system that has my other MD recorder in it, that was broken since around early October 2002 (when I turned it on and attempted to do anything such as turn up the volume, play an MD or CD, it turned off and wouldn't let me listen to anything). Well, I plugged it in today, and it works just as well as the day I bought it! I have a feeling there was bad electrical wiring where I used to live (in a condo that was fairly new, it was built in 1997.) Even though my new house is much older than the condo, obviously they took more care when they wired this house, or something supernatural is letting me use both MD recorders I have!

Trading breaks and delays 1/9/03
If you haven't heard already, I recently moved, and I still haven't settled in my new home yet. If we are in an aircheck trade at the moment, and if you haven't received your airchecks yet, be assured that I will get them out as soon as humanly possible. I haven't forgotten about your trade.

Upcoming Aircheck Trips 1/9/03
I have a few aircheck trips coming up in this new year. I expect to visit the usual places: Norfolk/Virginia Beach VA; Ocean City MD; and Woodstock VA over the course of 2003. Even though I will most likely go on these trips, and maybe even more to different places this year, the exact dates and the duration of my stay in each area is not known at this time. The only trip that is confirmed is to the Tampa FL area, and I will be there from 4/10/03 - 4/20/03.

Banned Trader Alert 1/8/03
Lex Van Dijken, of The Netherlands, has been banned from trading with me. He ripped me and a few other traders off by never sending my airchecks. he recently emailed me back stating that if I gave him one month, that I would have my airchecks in the mail from him that he didn't send me. More than a month and a half later, there are still no airchecks from Lex in my mailbox. I would recommend you ban Lex from trading with you also so you won't have to waste your time with him only to be ripped off.
