I have to disagree with you that a deep fringe antenna isn't needed. Momence Illinois (according to the OP's TV Fool) is listing the stations at around 50 miles, & not 40. Pulling up the Longly...

Let us know how your results are for getting all the channels you want. If you decide you want to go with a premade antenna, at 50 miles from Chicago, the Antennacraft HBU22 & Winegard HD7694 are...

To the OP, have you tried to see if you can get WBBM-TV on RF 26 from your area? Looking at the zipcode provided (Darien, IL), it shows that there is coverage of RF 26 in your area, & much stronger...

I expected Weigel to carry Decades in Milwaukee, since CBS owns no stations there. Since that's replacing This TV, did WITI finally pick it up?

It's also going on ABC O&O stations too, on the .3 channels of the ABC O&O stations. Unfortunately for me, Livewell Network isn't going anywhere. ABC has decided to keep the network running, but by...

I wonder if they're carrying Cozi-TV in 16:9, or 4:3. The network itself is 16:9, as all NBC O&O stations (including some Telemundo stations owned by NBC) carry Cozi in 16:9.

For those of you wondering about analog 23, based on the link below, it means that WWME-LD on RF 39 will become the Class A station. It didn't say anything about analog 23, but I'm assuming that...

I've had this preamp for 4 years now, & it has helped at getting 4 LPTV UHF stations, & the only Class A VHF-LO station. The full power stations were never the problem, as I'm about 30 miles SE of...

Going with a VHF-Hi/UHF only antenna for the Philadelphia market won't work for getting WPVI (ABC), as it's on RF 6. So unless the OP can live without ABC, then the OP must go with an all channel...

I'm starting to wonder if Winegard doesn't care as much about outdoor antennas anymore, that they'd give you a lame answer about the HD7694 being too powerful. The HD7694 is the minimum you need for...

It looks like you're mainly interested in Chicago stations, & not so much for WOCK-CD. I say go with the Winegard HD7694. If you're interested in using the same antenna for FM stations, more than...

I eventually did that, & I got it to get off of 60.1. Thing is that my HDTV is only 2 years old, and Insignia 26" 1080p TV. I don't know the model number at this time, but it's an ok TV for now. ...

They also have to protect WCCU Champaign, IL as well. That's why the signal is also nulled in that direction, but not as much, since WCCU nulls theirs to the north, for when WCIU was still on RF 26.
