Check out the wacky transmitter patterns for the Chicago area digital TV channels. Use this convenient tool to find your latitude and longitude.

I find it interesting that the two worst channels in the Chicago area (assuming the digital transmitter is in the same place as the regular one) are the ones that broadcast from the John Hancock building, the puny, third largest building in the city. As point of reference, here is a view of the Hancock (the big black one)- as seen from the Sears Tower. Where all the really good stations broadcast from. In fact, looking at a map, it looks like the Sears Tower could block the Hancock. And I'm not sure, but I think the Sears Tower sits on higher ground. It seems bigger than the 314' difference.
