For whatever it's worth, my Chicago DTV experience has been quite good 
so far. In the last year or so, I've tried from several locations around 
the city, including Ohio & Grand (June '09) and out in Oak Brook (June 
'08), and with the exception of WBBM-DT (then on 3) from Oak Brook, 
reception with an indoor antenna (the RIGHT indoor antenna - an 
unamplified Silver Sensor) has been flawless.

This has not been the case in other markets. Downtown LA this past 
August was a disaster, for instance.
