It is at full allocated power and height. It's not a weak station,
I think it is sevral hundred kilowatts. Its just that they have a
low tower about 30 miles away and I'm on the wrong side
of a hill. At 1000 feet it would be over the hill. They also have
another station, bit it is 68 miles away, though on a 1300 foot tower.
It's easy to get with a good Yagi antenna, however.

I'm not in the Chicago area ... I'm in Champaign, market 82.
We don't get any Chicago stations. I am not "between" any

We will have no difference post-transition. All stations will
keep their present digital allocations, except maybe one
which won't change things.
