Chicago is nearing the transition to Next Generation TV!  From what I'm seeing currently, this channel may be the home for the Chicago local TV stations to broadcast their NextGen TV signals!  It appears to be in the testing phase with a shopping channel being broadcast. I would guess that power will be increased to around 10 kW from its current 3 kW. Meanwhile catch up with what coming soon to Chicago by clicking here: NEXTGENTV.

The Chicagoland area is a very large geographic area, and not all channels will be watchable across the entire area. If you have questions about what you could expect to receive, click on the "coverage area" links for each station above.  Find your location on the map, and if you fall within the circular coverage area, you'll have a better chance of receiving the station you're seeking. Even from within the coverage area, your reception will depend on your antenna placement and the directionality of your antenna.
