The 100.1 translator in Oswego was originally on 99.7. I'm not sure when
these domains were registered, but perhaps the 99.7 one predated the
shift to 100.1.
Understand that these are just spoiler domains that were registered by
Citadel to cause some grief to their competitor, Galaxy. Citadel now has
the ESPN affiliation on its WNSS 1260 Syracuse, but as of March 1 the
affiliation moves over to Galaxy's WTLA 1200 North Syracuse (which will
be relayed on the 97.7) and WSGO 1440 Oswego (which will be relayed on
the 100.1 translator).
Citadel's only motivation here is to sow some confusion for anyone
looking for the new ESPN stations when they launch in March. It may well
be that they've registered something for 97.7 as well that nobody's
noticed yet. In any event, it still has nothing to do with New England,
as best I can tell.
