I have a Airline teledial I'm finishing up and would like to keep the call letters for the push buttons like the original owner would have had on it. Or at least something close. It has 10 push buttons and I have 4 original stations. KDKA-Pittsburg, WMMN-Fairmont, WLW-Cincinnati, and WSM-Nashville. What would be some reasonable stations within that area?

Thanks Steve. I have original lists of stations from about that time, just looking for A group of stations that the original owner may have listened to starting with the 4 I listed. I'll check out your suggestions.

WHAS in Louisville was a 50 KW clear channel station. It's between Cincinnati and Nashville, so appropriate. Its still around, but I'm not sure how much power it disperses these days. WRVA in Richmond is also strong in the midwest.

There are some obvious errors here starting with 1912 and it is not cumulative, but it may be helpful.

It still is. I received it some years back, here in SoCal; my best DX at over 2,000 miles.
