Okay.  I may have crossed things, and others may have changed.  In any case,
 at one point there *was* a CPTV (PBS) station in Waterbury, as well as 
Hartford, New Haven, Bridgeport, and (channel 53) in Norwich).  My 
references are elsewhere.

There was also another call between the time channel 4 in NYC became WNBC 
and channel 30 became WVIT.  I just can't remember what it was, and I don't 
have references handy.
