- Please include
the vital info on a piece of paper for each aircheck you send me. Vital info
is the station's call letters, city of license, and date and time of
recording. Please don't forget to include the time you started recording.
- Please record
normal programming, no mixshows, syndicated shows, or morning shows unless
asked. And please record each aircheck unscoped, which means do not
stop the aircheck from recording at all, let it record until the aircheck
is finished recording and stops on its own.
- Please use only
new MDs, CDs, or cassette tapes to record on for me. Since I always
record on new media for you, I expect the same in return.
- Please do not
put labels onto the aircheck. I put my own computer-generated labels on all
of my airchecks, and it is a pain to try to remove labels that seem to be
permanently adhered to the aircheck.
- I generally
do not send cases with MDs, or tapes. They weigh down the package and makes
it more expensive to mail them to you. Keep the cases to whatever you send
me so you can use them for your own airchecks you will get in return from
me. I will though send cases to CDs and VHS tapes.
- Please don't
record MDs in LP2/LP4 MDLP mode, since it deteriorates the sound quality of
- Due to time
constraints, I will record at most 4 MDs, CDs, or VHS tapes at once. This
will ensure you that I will get your airchecks out as so on as possible.
- We can exchange
recording media. Say I want a VHS tape from you of your local news, and you
want MDs from the radio from me instead, it can be done. Three (3) MDs or
CDs equal one VHS tape for trading. So, if I request one VHS tape of your
local TV news, you will be able to request three MDs or CDs from me in return.
- If this is our
first trade, I will have to receive my airchecks I requested from you first
before I send yours out. This is to prevent myself getting ripped off. If
you have traded before with others, and/or you have at least two references
that can agree that you are an honest trader and you will send my airchecks
to me, let me know their email addresses and I will contact them to see if
you are telling the truth. Of course if you need proof about myself, check
out my Other Traders
page, where I have my references listed.
there are times where I will have to ban a person from trading with me, usually
over the person not sending me my airchecks when I have already sent their's
out. In this event, I will post a message on the Radio-Info
airchecks message board with your name and city/state you are from, so others
will know to stay away from you so they won't get ripped off. Its common procedure
that every other aircheck trader follows.
