I need to do some highly sophisticated pitch-correction on some old reel-to-reel recordings. What software to use?

I have a project which requires me to do some rather elaborate pitch correction on some old reel-to-reel tapes which have not aged well. Here's one of the examples
What on earth can I do with this to make the Morse tone steady? Is there a program which can do some sort of algorithmic calculation to account for the pitch warp (i.e., by taking an "image" of the tone and generating a perfect mirror algorithm)?
I know I could probably get all modern and "vocode" a new tone over it and keep the rhythm of the original recording, but these are historically important radio stations, so I can't just go remixing them for convenience.
Folks in the archival audio world must deal with this all the time. Thoughts?
