Station calls that no longer work

WTRF-TV in Wheeling...TRF stood for 'two radio frequencies,' both of which were eliminated many years ago. I get the history, but, with new ownership, perhaps calls that better represent them NOW would be better. Any other examples, gentlemen, along with any ladies out there?

WTRF just needs to be blown up and rebuilt from the bottom up. It is almost a non-competing station in a two station market. WTOV outperforms them 5 to 1 in most day parts. It is really sad to see how far down hill they have fallen.
