Another example that I just remember, KLZ right here in Denver. That has been in continuous use for a terrestrial station since I think about 1922 (it's Denver first commercial station), but previously assigned to a ship that sunk in 1920 called the HMS Speedwell. What's really interesting is that the name Speedwell was originally the name of the Mayflower's ill-fated sister ship as well (it began taking on water twice and turned back, never making it to the New World).

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
