Ive had an OTA antenna connected to my Dish system for probably about 7 years now and Ive always got all my local channels, but recently I've been hearing that WCIU (a local channel out of Chicago that broadcasts Sox and Bulls games) had made an antenna in Rockford, IL (about 15 miles south of me). I see on Wikipedia it says the channel is WFBN-LP on Channel 33. After I did a rescan I can't get it to show up. I went to AntennaWeb and it says that I should be able to get the channel also. If you want to look it up use the Zip 61080, South Beloit, IL.

Does anyone know why this would be if I can pull in all the other channels from rockford?

Thanks for all your help

WFBN-LP is an analog station and the Dish receivers cant get those
WFBN-LD is digital per the FCC but is only 3000 watts so you may not get it on the receiver...try it on something else that has a digital tuiner

I'm confused as it shows both on tvfool.
