In a word, no.  A few times over the years I've thought of researching 
this but I've never gotten around to it.  I've heard that the term 
stemmed from early tests of the studio line (to the transmitter) versus 
the off air signal (an air check).  But I really can't document that.

    Hi Ed,

    Hi,

    We've been having a discussion as to when and where the phrase "air
    check" "aircheck" came from.  Any info?

    Thanks,
    Rod Stephens
