In an e-mail from a WBBM broadcast engineer:

|Just a quick note to let you know that we plan on beginning digital
over-the-air broadcasts on Thursday, May 31. AT&T Cable tells us they've
fixed their infrastructure problems and are ready for us to begin
low-powered broadcasts. We're set to begin sometime Thursday morning
although I'm not sure exactly when. This is also contingent on everything
working properly at the transmitter. (This stuff hasn't been fired up for
almost two years.)
It's doubtful that you will be able to receive our low powered signal as far
out as you are, but stranger things have happened.
Let me know if you are able to see us Thursday. If not, you can keep
watching cable for now. Once we're up to full power you should definitely
be able to watch us over the air.
