Below are my airchecks.  First,
 
+ Means A New Just Added Aircheck
# Means I taped the aircheck myself
 
My Grading system for the quality of my airchecks are:
 
Studio - Recorded right off the board at a radio station or from a tape that was recorded right off the board at a radio station
 
Excellent - The aircheck is not a studio one but everying sounds clean, no drop-outs, etc.
 
Good - Not as good as Excellent.  Sound volume might be low.  The tape might have been recorded off of an old reel or the tape might have been copied too many times or the tape might have been made while traveling.
