Some say they may just buy a new antenna and/or transmitter and go back on
air. The woman who supposedly owns these stations may have written
"refused" on letters from the FCC about the violations.

Big City was forced to move off 101.3 when WJIB's FM translator went on.The
legitimate station was curbing their illegal one greatly, and they soon
wound up on frequencies that would soon be home to other LPFMs.

On Twitter, someone wondered "Who bought Big City?" apparently thinking Big
City had a license and apparently the "owners" sold it to Bob Bittner.

Several pirates are still on, as I noted last night on Storrow Drive..a few
on AM, and some FMs--90.1, 92.1, and 93.9 (right next to WEEI-FM).I was
told somebody heard a pirate on 91.9 when they were in Everett...WUMB's
