Will WMDE ever make it to the air?

The FCC wanted to keep a possible loop hole from letting a full power station move cross country, so they offered a VHF 5 station for DE, which was bought, and a CP was issued for WMDE.

The owners of WMDE wanted to move the city from Seaford to Dover.

That caused some anger.

Now there is KJWP VHF 2 in/coming to Philly for DE, so what is the current status of WMDE, and how likely is it they will ever get a station on the air?

Western Pacific Broadcast is getting WMDEs city of license moved into the Philadelphia DMA, but it will still cover the eastern shore quite well, with spill over into Baltimore and DC. http://www.rabbitears.info/contour.p...=1422060&map=Y
To get the city of license changed, Western Pacific Broadcast said the transmitter would not need to move, so I wonder if it will stay where it is or if in the future they will move it closer to Dover to get an actual OTA signal into Philadelphia. They might just be gaming for cable distribution?
