DX-midAMerica/Aircheck Arcade  

   The listing below is a collection of airchecks which I have made through the years. There is a scoped and unscoped section. This is under constuction as I am always making new checks or finding others. All are made by me, and not stuff I might have from other people. I am not a super aircheck trader by any means. These are arranged chronologically, with the newest on top. ALL are Top40, unless noted. (5 hrs) denotes a night-time (7-Midnight) full 5 hr shift, scoped. When on vacation I just run the tapes. Radio and the formatics of radio have interested me since I was a child. I am a top 40 fanatic and a tight true CHR is the best radio format to my mind!

THE SCOPED SELECTIONS:* 5 hours or (entire shift) scoped
