>>I would imagine one could file for a COL change to somewhere
like Tewksbury, Wilmington, Burlington, etc., seeing as 99.5
moving would still leave Lowell with "local service."<<

Not from the FCC's viewpoint.  A station's public service obligation
derives from its COL first...other communities later or not at all.  The
FCC would only view such a move as depriving Lowell of its only
commercial FM, and the burden on the applicant to show just cause for
that kind of move is much higher than it would be if Lowell had other
commercial FM assignments.
