Script to force a radio button selection...

I'm querying a database with ASP that lists selections with radio buttons, and it lists anywhere from zero to 30 records. I have this code to force a selection before going to the next page:

<script language="JavaScript">
function checkForm(theForm) {
  msg = "";
  qTrain = theForm.schedule_chosen;
  qCheck = false;
  for(i=0;i<qTrain.length;i++){
    if(qTrain[i].checked==true){
      qCheck = true;
    }
  }
  if (qCheck == false) {
    msg += "You must choose a shift";
  }
  if (msg>"") {
    alert (""+msg);
    return false
  }
}    
</script>

It works just fine when I have more than 1 record listed, but when there is only 1 listed it keeps prompting the user with "You must choose a shift". Any idea what's wrong in this script? If it helps, this is my code for the radio buttons:

Response.Write "<tr><td><input type='radio' name='schedule_chosen' value='"&rs2("num")&"'>" & rs2("11_26") & "</td></tr>"

Any help is much appreciated.

      qCheck = true;
