Low noise preamps are the key it would seem.
I live in northwestern Bartholomew County (maybe 40 miles south of downtown Indy). I don't have any way of receiving digital OTA channels now and really am just interested in getting Buzzr. I'm hearing a lot of stuff about how limited the signal is. So what equipment (if any) would pick up this channel?

Buzzr from Indy is a VERY low power station (7.5Kw). I only receive it from time to time (usually in the evening). I have a 25 foot tower, an old-school Winegard VHF-UHF antenna (it was the best one they made in its day), followed by an RCA pre-amp (TVPRAMP1R).
I hate to be a pessimist, but I think you'll have trouble receiving WUDZ-LD(28-1001) on a regular basis.
The following website will give you some idea of your chances.

Good luck. ( I'm afraid you'll need it! )

They are licensed to Terre Haute, their transmitter is located in Danville IN with only 7.5kw of power.
WUDZ-LD filed another request to move its transmitter site and it was approved. The station transmits from the WHMB tower on the northwest side of Indy.
