    Looking for someone who might have a collection of DVD's like the ones that use to be made by Extreme Rocketry magazine each year, or other makers of VHS tapes of Argonia, Midwest Power, etc. I am living on SS Income so I can't afford to pay new prices for them. I would even be open to returning all of them just to be able to watch them one time.
    Would also like to find magazines to read and see what I missed through the years.

    Thanks,
    Marty

    I believe Tripoli is trying to or has purchased the rights to High Power Rocketry Magazine and will release the back issues in PDF format.

    Justin: If you have been reading the comments that I have been leaving on your YouTube videos, you know I'm a big fan of your videos.

    I have a bunch of video I took from 1993 through last year. This is raw footage so it includes the nogo on pad, grass shots, etc. Most are from Orangeburg, SC.
    BTW, you can download 10 years of Rockets Magazine here https://rocketsmagazine.com/backissuedownloads/ as pdfs

    That would be great to see, thanks. The link to the 10 volumes of Rockets Magazine works nice, that should keep me busy for awhile.

    Thanks to everyone who has sent links and Dropbox books. I'm having great enjoyment so far. Going through all the back issues of "Rockets" magazines will take quite awhile. Seems there are some posts missing from this thread though?

    I just burned a couple of DVD's last night. I probably haven't burned a DVD in 4-5 years and it took me a while to find everything. I had to use an old laptop that still has a DVD burner in it. In additional to my LDRS 21 DVD I also burned a copy of the TV show The Rocket Challenge that was on Discovery Channel years ago. I was on the set for several of the episodes and knew a lot of the folks involved. I'll send the discs out on Monday.

    I'm having to generate new DVD iso files from the footage. There are about 25 DVDs worth. I will post here when they are ready.

    That will be interesting to see if I can open them up with my limited pc knowledge. Can those files be downloaded to a dvd disc?

    Each file is 4.3GB. Easiest is to burn DVDs and mail them. It would take FOREVER to upload over 100 GB!

    Thanks so much for the generous contributions. Being disabled, I spend lots of time in bed, so watching rocket videos is great enjoyment. The videos that I still are unable to find are the "Balls" launches. I saw them listed in the "Extreme Rocketry " magazines that Kevin Trojanowski sent me years ago, which I have read through twice now. I was hoping to find some on YouTube but they seem to be elusive.
