Tom, that FCC site mentions these rather powerful translators. I'd be very curious what they're there for. If there's any justice, they should be to relay the missing common OTA stations in Gainesville, like NBC, CW, MNT, and whatever. This is how the powerful ones are listed. Note also the decent antenna heights. Maybe someone knows what they're for:

W22DB 22 + TX CP MOD GAINESVILLE FL US BMPTTL-20050804ACI - 131202 150. kW DA 0. m 118.1 m 96.5 m N 29 28 23.10 W 82 35 20.60 1019813 19.63 km 12.20 mi 249.00° TIGER EYE LICENSING, LLC

W63DB is an LPTV station not a translator.

No translators on the air in this list.

There are also applications for some low-power DTT stations, but that's different. I didn't include those. I'm surprised that a market like Gainesville doesn't have some larger OTA TV market they can easily feed from. Antennaweb is singularly unhelpful for Gainesville.
