Heya Denny...WBBM 2-1 is coming in quite nicely for me in Schaumburg (Samsung SIR T150).


I watched for close to a half hour without any problems at all (around 5:30 tonight).


Good luck.

Yes DENNY


It comes and it goes. Haven't had a stable good signal for almost a month now.


Just watch it on cable and hope for a full power broadcast.

I was at Tweeter in Gurnee last night and the guy punched up WBBM no problem. If they can get it up there, why can't everybody get it? I wonder if they have some sort of "magic".

I thinkI found part of my problem! I did a little site check and realized just how big my neighbors tree had gotten since last year,So with my daughters help (SHE really love getting on the roof) I moved my antenna to the other side of the roof and BINGO -I got my signal back!At least now I have a signal in the 60-70 range and a picture That I did not have before. So it looks like Saturday I know what I'll be doing,Moving tripod,ant.& cables to a new location on the roof. I didn't think moving the antenna 15 feet would make that much difference but it did! I hope anyone that reads this checks out there ANTENNA location it was a simple fix to my problem and maybe someone else's also!Thanks to everyone who responded to my post. THANKS DENNY M.

Jim,


I have only had a viewable signal from wbbm 2.1 once, for about 2 minutes, here in OD. I'm on the lake, have a direct path to Sears tower, but no go so far. Can't wait till they go to full signal strength. Anyone identified Chuck's replacement yet? Is he/she online?
