Sounds like you want to do the hybridization part of a nuclear run-on. 

Check protocol books for procedures on nuclear run-ons.  The most
imoprtant part of the procedure is to do a long hybridization, don't
shorten the time.
Of course, it's also nice if you spot a bunch of control plasmids on the
membrane just for fun!  Things like unrelated plasmids, non-plasmid DNA,
housekeeping clones, then the cDNAs that you are interested in.  Keep the
spots small!  Use a miniblotter if you have one. Otherwise, spot small
volumes, let dry, spot more, let dry.
