Dude if you can’t figure out which firms are publicy traded on your own, you really might want to consider another career…

Most of the larger BDs (whether indy, wire, regional, whatever) will be publicly traded, or a wholly owned subsidiary of another company that is public.  If there is a specific one, check their website and it should tell you.  If they don’t have a website, I’d run.

Why not sit down with a quote machine and just start pulling symbols down and seeing what they do?

Start with single letters, "A then B then C."  Work up to double letters, AA, AB, AC, AD and so forth.

Everytime you come across a brokerage firm you could write it down on a 3x5 card and add their phone number to your DNC list.
