nearly zero. It is only licensed as a low power station with highly directional antenna since it is on the same frequency as WITI in Milwaukee which is 1 MW. WCHU chose a very bad frequency.

If W25DW goes silent some of us will be relieved due to the end of interference to WCGV. That waste signal offers very little to half of Chicagoland except co-channel interference. The other half...

A better question would be why the FCC planned the transition so poorly and allowed so many adjacent channels, especially in the Chicago area. To me, it'd make sense to throw a few class A stations...

Much? and with VHF-DT? I disagree. WWTO doesn't even reliably cover north of I-290. Maybe 1/3 of the metro area, at best. I'll have to look up the article referencing that it is not a must-carry,...

cable companies do not have to carry WWTO. An FCC ruling said it does not significantly serve the Chicago market.

It's strange. If I program the DirecTV Am-21 receiver it will get WPVN on 24-1 when I choose Milwaukee as the secondary market and tune 24-1. I think it's a hiccup in the guide. But we'd all like to...

WCHU and W25DW reception sucks for 3/4 of the metro viewing area do to the low power and highly SW directional antenna. I wish they would just go off the air and stop interfering with WCGV and WITI,...

Must Carry rules only apply to full powered stations right? So, a measly 400W station is probably not mandated to be carried.

I'm not cutting down the conference at all. The 11am games are second rate since they good ones are at 2:30 and 7pm, but they're still better than 75% of the games in the BigTen(12).
