Fresno, California 1300 KWRU from KYNO
Apopka, Florida 1520 WBZW from WHIM

Roanoke, Virginia 910 WFJX from WWWR
Charleston, W. Va. 950 WBES from WVTS
Charleston, W. Va. 1240 WVTS from WBES


* The WZMF call always gets my attention... Growing up, the WZMF tower was about a half-mile from my house, beaconing away with its red tower warning light. (and 3,000 watts of underground rock music)

The suburban house that held the station is still there. But all it holds are a bunch of two-way base stations, and backups for what ceased to be WZMF 98.3 some 30 years ago, and its sister station on 106.9.

To my knowledge those calls have made another stop, somewhere in Illinois, on the way from suburban Milwaukee to an AM station in Pennsylvania.
