have yet to see either WDJT and WBBM,
WDJT as with WISN an outdoor or attic or upstaris( if you have one ) location will probably be necessary. WBBM is hi-VHF whihc might expalin you're problem if you just using a UHF antenna or basic rabbit ears.
I've seen WCGV a couple of times
Slightly more powerful signal than the other Milwaukee stations mentioned already.
and have gotten WPWR(beginning to hate that station) in almost every placement
One of your most powerful stations so no surprise there.
I even get the analog WOCK-CD I don't know why this low power station is coming in but the others in the area are not.
More shocking because it's low-VHF. But I thnk your location near the water may have something to do with it. About 15 of the 40 mile trip the signals make from Chicago to you is over water.
I should also ask at what time you did the testing of the antennas. If you do it at night you're more likely to get more stations in. So it's better to do it in the day. You could get stations in at night that you can't get in durring the day in a particular antenna location then when daytime comes you'd be "Hey where in the heck did my stations go?"
Since all the stations from Chicago come from the same place basically you might try an antenna with a narrower beamwidth. You could be getting multipath with the signals bouncing around indoors. Someone suggested a Turk. I can't vouch for them but it may be worth a try.
You could also get something like thishttp://www.bestbuy.com/site/Antennas...&skuId=8850601
though I personally wouldn't pay $50 for it. Especially since I make one of those myself for less than $10.
