Comparing our signal readings of WFYI-DT on our DTC100's tonight seems rather strange to me. While the other local digitals for me are reading in the upper 80's to mid 90's, WFYI-DT is reading only 52. At the moment I'm even getting a reading of 92 from WTTV-DT, 53 (4kw. @ 37 miles) and a reading of 58 from WLFI-DT, 11, Lafayette (40 miles away and I don't have my preamp on the line tonight). At my close proximity to the antenna farm, maybe I've got some bad multipath problems with 21.
WFYI-DT is using a directional antenna and it appears that you and I are both in two of the weakest coverage directions. The antenna relative field values vary from a low of .284 @ 130 degrees, close to your direction, to a high of 1.000 @ 350 degrees.
The WXIN-59/WXIN-DT, 45 tower is just north of Westlane Road, near W.71st St. and Michigan Road.
