dicko2, what is your antenna setup? Your reception (other than WBBM) sounds pretty good, I'm envious. From Milwaukee, digital 8 has signal strength of 6-12 and analog 10 is fuzzy but watchable here in Downers Grove, and that's all I can get -- nothing from Rockford or Madison or South Bend. (I had had some luck in September but it was from tropospheric ducting, and that phenomenon is definitely over for awhile here.)
Maybe I need a pre-amp. I've got a Radio Shack VU-190R on the roof about 30 feet off the ground. Kipp, what do you think? Can you get anything from Rockford, Milwaukee, or South Bend regularly?
During football season, in particular, it would be nice to have the ability to choose from different stations around the area, although the regular season is coming to a close.
Any thoughts or suggestions from any members would be appreciated. I'm in pretty good shape regarding Chicago broadcasts, but I still want more...
