        There are several others that come to mind, but I can't find
the info right now.  If anyone's interested, I'll post additional
info as I find it.  Note that the majority of the list is from
the NAB Engineering Handbook.  Phone numbers are as they would
be dialed from the US.  From outside the US, replace a leading
011 with your international access code.
