The Tevatron experiments CDF and DØ are close to making definitive statements about the technicolor discovery mode ρT → WπT for MρT ≲ 250 GeV and MπT ≲ 150 GeV. We propose new incisive tests for this mode and searches for others that may be feasible at the Tevatron and certainly are at the LHC. The other searches include two long discussed, namely, ωT → γπT and ℓ+ℓ-, and a new one—for the IGJPC =1-1++ partner, aT, of the ρT. Adopting the argument that the technicolor contribution to S is reduced if MaT ≃MρT, we enumerate important aT decays and estimate production rates at the colliders.
