Has Hot 97 (at 87.7) been raided?

A couple people have said 87.7 is back on (when I headed to the cookout yesterday I didn't hear anything; in the past
 on 128 between Danvers and Reading it would have come in), with a horrible signal. Either they did get raided and found a way to get back on (found new transmitter or antenna?) or they were just having technical difficulties. I don't know if they could get away with being on 87.7 "as long as there are no complaints from legit stations or aircraft radio". (Dan S was telling me yesterday there are a very few stations licensed to 87.9--I think I had known that too--
 though I don't know if any are around here, offhand.)

 So if 87.7 is far enough away from 88.1 to not cause interference, who knows, maybe they can get away with it. It's possible that they fall into the category of illegal operators who defy FCC raids, fines, etc. and just go back on.
