Anyone in the northern suburbs had success in receiving the Milwaukee digital stations? If so, what antenna and STB? My sony HD-100 and Channel Master 4228 can't seem to pull it off. Thanks

I only get channel 8 digital - channel 10 psip. It is the Milwaukee PBS channel. Nothing but 6 channels of multicast junk.

No more HD than you will get with WTTW (which is virtually none) and 5 more of not much better.

I have a DTC-100, A RS 120" boom and I am picking it up from Lake Zurich.

I've tried from Downers Grove with no luck. I haven't pulled in anything except the eight downtown Chicago DTV stations.

From Winnetka I get Milwaukee PBS (Ch 8 or 10) on rare occasions, not reliable enough to watch, and it doesn't matter now that WTTW is up. Radio Shack $40 antenna and amplifier. I get everything in Chicago just fine.
