Mailing list

There is a mailing list, where usually once a month I send updates on big news and what's new here. If you'd like to be added, or for that matter removed then just drop me a note. afrts@live.com

If you have any airchecks/transcriptions to share, let me know.

And finally, if you enjoy this please tell a friend!

Give a Jingle


Our Australian friend Dyo asked if there were more jingles available. Dyo supplied us that great montage of jingles last year. I'm happy to say yes..


AFTN update


Captain Madrack sent in some nice sounding memories of the Thailand network.
AFTN April 1973

Or listen here:


I really appreciate it and I'm sure that a lot of others do when you share your airchecks with us all. I threw mine away and greatly regretted it later. Please let me know what you have.

Today the good Captain (Ralph Gebes) is still involved with the troops:

Thom I am very involved in support our deployed troops. Operation Support Our Troops Illinois www.osotil.org. We have a concert every year with Gary Sinise and the Lt Dan Band. I will send you a copy of last year’s concert. I have taken up video production I am not making a living at it but produce videos for the VFW, OSOTIL, and the local cable access channel. I enjoy the creative side of things and often wish I could be on the air again.
