Those translator applications have been in the FCC's system for quite some time, whenever the last window was, maybe 2005 or earlier? There are many others around the area too, including 102.9 in Boston I believe. It's interesting that we still don't have any big translators around here, where there are many on 2nd adjacent frequencies in big markets such as 97.9 in Atlanta, 97.5 and 100.7 in Chicago, 103.1 and 106.3 in NYC, etc...
