Ok so this clip is of me making my final landing during one of my solo flights back in 2003. The recording was made using a Net MD minidisk recorder with a 6.3mm plug adapter plugged into the 'spare' headset recepticle, and so you are hearing not just ATC comms, but anything I say loud enough to activate the intercom.
After making a number of circuits around and around, I am making my last landing of the day. I have already asked on downwind if I could get the "north Side" of the airfield, which is to say runway 11L or 11C, which will shorten taxi time compared to 11R by a good 5 minutes. The tower told me to report turning base so that he could have a look at the traffic situation before he gave me clearance to land on 11L or 11C.
Another aircraft calls in before I do, and I wait for what I expect to be the entire exchange. that is to say, Request - Response... unfortunatley for me the other aircraft responds to the response, and I end up stepping on him, I let go of the transmit key, notice we were both transmitting at the same time, say "doh" to the intercom, and then go again with my report.
I get told to go to runway Centre, and am told of the other aircraft which is on a Left circuit for 11L, while I am on Right circuit for 11C...
A duchess then reports ready holding short of 11C, and they want to do run ups on the runway (Practice aborted takeoffs in both directions not becoming airborne), and they are told to hold short. Then the aircraft on opposite base to me is told about me, and he is cleared touch and go... he then requests something which I still can't make out, but the tower seems to know what he's on about and approves his request, before clearing me to land.
This recording was made September 2003, but I reicently refound it going through some things of mine.
