Are only small main group elements detectable by NMR?

The list of nuclei in the previous question are just commonly used ones in NMR experiments. Other elements are observable, but sometimes these require special hardware to obtain useful signal levels. Some of these other nuclei that can be studied by NMR are 17O, 29Si, 33S, 77Se, 89Y, 103Rh, 117Sn, 119Sn, 125Te, 195Pt, 111Cd, 113Cd, 129Xe, 199Hg, 203Tl, 205Tl, and 207Pb.
