Puzzle help needed...

determined

current mood: determined
current song: Madonna - Hung Up

Anyone able to help with these queries? It's the old type of puzzle which mixes letters and numbers together - ie 7W of the W is 7 Wonders of the World. According to the email however, my parents are stuck on these :

7P in a NT
4S in A
64S on a CB
22B (including 15R) on a ST
11P in a FT

Maybe it's the lack of coffee, but I'm stuck too. But you, my lovely flist, are smart people. Help? Please?



Because of course my parents know me too well, they added in the other ones they already had gotten, just to make my brain sweat. The ones I twigged on a quick read-though before work are in bold.
