A SITE FOR TRADING TELEVISION NEWS AIRCHECKS

One of my interests in television broadcasting has been to view various television stations and how they cover local news, whether it be current events or moments in history.

The basis for this page is to trade, in no intention of copyright infringement, local television newscasts, promos, history specials, and related material.

Archived items have been recorded to DVD, and are listed on this site with a reference number of my own design (i.e. "N006", "N194", etc.) Material on an individual disk can range from the 1960s to present day.

TRADING NOTES:

DVD:
I'm able to record and playback on the following formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW (4.7 GB), DVD+R, and DVD+RW (4.7 GB). I'm unable to record or copy DVD-RAM or BluRay formats. I am NOT able nor will I copy commercially sold DVDs. Also at the current time, all recordings are in standard definition.

VHS:
While I'm able to dub from VHS, I no longer record on this format.

Please note that at this time, I cannot send/receive material online. It's a simple matter of lacking the hardware (the DVD recorder is separate from my computer equipment), hence my preference for 'smail-mail' trades.

Also, I prefer to trade for material that amounts to a similar amount of time. In other words, if I have two hours worth of material one would be interested in, please offer two hours of material in return. Or to put it another way, a DVD for a DVD or a VHS tape for a VHS tape.

Plus, when making a trade request, please include the DVD 'number' with the material. My collection has grown so much, even I forget where stuff is located.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
I'm currently looking to trade for television markets not listed on my site, such as current newscasts of individual stations I may not have, or vintage broadcasts from the 1990s and earlier. Plus any blooper reels, promo reels, station anniversary specials, and the like.
