Best TV Antenna for Chicago, IL Digital TV Stations


A guide to Chicago free TV stations. Availability, reception maps, best tv antenna type

Watch Free HDTV In Chicago
Over 75 free channels available.


The Best choice for free digital - HDTV -TV Antenna reception for the Chicago area is the EZ-HD or the HD Stacker antennas.

Here's why:

The Chicago free to air TV market is one of the best in the entire Country. There are dozens of free channels available. All of the major network channels are available (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW, ION) plus several independent channels and dozens of sub channels to numerous to mention.

There is 1 major channel in Chicagp broadcasting a VHF TV signals. This is important because most antennas available today are designed for UHF signals and perform poorly for the reception of VHF signals. The major channel is WBBM CBS channel 2.1. In addition channel 2 provides sub channels all VHF signals.

Be aware that most antennas on the market today claim to be VHF capable when in fact they're not.

For more information about VHF TV reception I suggest you visit the following pages.

What's the difference between a VHF and UHF TV antenna >

To insure the reception of CBS channel 2 and the channel 2 sub channels learn the difference between VHF and UHF TV antennas.

The Chicago TV station reception map below is compiled from actual customer reports using either the EZ HD > or the HD Stacker > TV antennas. If the TV antenna location is inside of the Green circle on the map below use the EZ HD TV antenna. If the antenna location is outside of the Green circle but within the Blue circle use the HD Stacker TV antenna. TV reception from Chicago TV stations outside of the Blue circle is possible but is hit and miss. Both the EZ HD and the HD Stacker TV antennas have been physically fine tuned to receive the Chicago area TV stations digital TV signal frequencies currently in use.

The EZ HD and the HD Stacker antennas are physically tuned to receive the specific TV signal frequencies in use by the Chicago TV stations. Inch for inch both antennas will outperform any other antenna on the market. We guarantee it or your money back.

Note: Some Chicago area residents have reported problems receiving WBBM channel 2.1 CBS > when using antennas other than the EZ HD or the HD Stacker. This is due to the VHF broadcast frequency in use by WBBM and the use of the improper antenna to receive VHF signal frequency. Many of today's antennas (do to smaller antenna size) will not receive VHF signals. The EZ HD and the HD Stacker are designed to provide excellent performance across the entire frequency spectrum in the Chicago broadcasting market.


Antenna Aiming - From the antenna installation site aim the narrower end of the antenna > at the Red X on the map above to receive the Chicago TV stations.

The Chicago TV station reception map above is based on the use of the EZ HD and HD Stacker TV antennas installed in an outdoor location at an elevation of at least 20 feet above ground. TV antennas located indoors such as attics etc. will likely experience reduced reception range. Antennas installed at an elevation greater than 20 feet above ground will likely experience increased reception range and antennas installed less then 20 feet above ground will likely experience reduced reception range. The closer the TV antenna installation site is to the transmitters (X) the lower the antenna can be installed to the ground.
