Yes, but...

The rules changed along the way, and the protection that WBUR would once 
have gotten from WSMU on 91.1 is no longer mandated by the current rules. 
(IIRC - and I'm going strictly by memory here - it has to do with the 
first-adjacent station's 40 or 45 dBu contour not touching the other 
first-adjacent station's 100 dBu contour.) That's how SMU - er, USM - er, 
UMassDartmouth was able to get the 89.3 app recharacterized from being a 
frequency change for WSMU to being an app for a brand-new facility.
