I am wondering if there's any chance to get a short fragment of ATC/pilot radio exchange of any flight to/from small airport of Talkeetna (Alaska). This airport seems to be not present on liveatc.net, and I just don't know any other web resources of that kind. I imagine that there might be some local amateurs streaming (I do know the frequency: 123.6 MHz) but I don't even know where to search for that kind of things - some local forums, etc? I googled and found some websites, for example GlobalTuners (doesn't have what I need), RemoteHams (requires callsign which I don't have) - any other suggestions?

P.S. why I need this: I'm making a small video (non-commercial of course, only for friends) about our recent Denali expedition, including the footage of our flights from Talkeetna to the basecamp and back. Intensive radio exchange during the whole flight made an authentic background but unfortunately I could not record it as it was only audible in the headphones. So it would be cool to find a sound track replacement.

126.3 MHz is the Talkeetna CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency). You may have heard some traffic on this frequency while in-flight. Pilots use this to advise other pilots that they are in the area of Talkeetna since their is no ATC (Air Traffic Control) facility at the airport. You will likely not find a monitoring site for this frequency.

You may find some suitable recordings or an Internet listening station of the Anchorage ARTCC (Air Route Traffic Control Center) as they handle all APCH/DEP (Approach and Departure) for Talkeetna on 125.55/254.3. It may take some listening before hearing a Talkeetna related exchange, however.
