|Just a quick note to let you know that we plan on beginning digital
over-the-air broadcasts on Thursday, May 31. AT&T Cable tells us they've
fixed their infrastructure problems and are ready for us to begin
low-powered broadcasts. We're set to begin sometime Thursday morning
although I'm not sure exactly when. This is also contingent on everything
working properly at the transmitter. (This stuff hasn't been fired up for
almost two years.)
It's doubtful that you will be able to receive our low powered signal as far
out as you are, but stranger things have happened.
Let me know if you are able to see us Thursday. If not, you can keep
watching cable for now. Once we're up to full power you should definitely
be able to watch us over the air.

This is probably a dumb question, but why can't they get a different channel from the FCC if it is causing so many problems. All other digital stations in Chicago are in the UHF channel range. I would prefer not having to purchase a VHF antenna anyway.

What channel were you receiving WBBM on? I performed channel search between 9-10 am using both UHF and VHF antennas and did not receive anything. NBC, ABC and FOX were coming in at 80-85 strength. I kept looking for channel 3 or 3-1 but nothing.
