Hey there, Welcome to Chicago, Angie. For your own edification, Lou Malnati and Pizzeria UNO, DUE were partners back in the 40's when Ike Sewell came up with the dough recipe for deep dish pizza (the crust is highly delicious on these two vendor's pizzas); Malnati's has many locations around Chicagoland. Secondly, never put ketchup on a hotdog (unless you're under the age of 5 yrs old), or mayonnaise on corned beef (and never on white bread).
Most importantly, KBC, WOCH-Channel 41, is a low power broadcast station which, depending on where you are located, will require that you purchase some type of a special antenna to help bring in the signal better. To help you in this process, here is the thread in which we already discussed our experiences over the past year. Good luck!
There's another thread, but I couldn't find it. Here's what KBC recommends:
We have found the below items helpful in receiving all television signals. They cost around $25.00 and shipping is around $5.00. We do not receive any revenue from the links below, we are not affiliated with this company in any way, and they are only suggestions. Radio Shack also sells similar devices.
For One Television Set Channel Master CM 3042 13dB Single Output Indoor Distribution Amplifier
For up to Two Television Sets Channel Master CM 3043 22dB Dual Output Indoor Distribution Amplifier
For up to Four Television Sets Channel Master CM 3044 22dB Four Output Indoor Distribution Amplifier Now that I read this, I should tell you that my antenna gives a 30db boost and I still have problems when the weather is bad (even high wind has a detrimental effect on the signal). Oh, one more very important thing, THERE IS NO PRINTED SCHEDULE, GET USED TO IT!!!!!. In case you want to know the day's programming, it is shown on air daily at 7am; we find it kind of a test of one's character to: a) watch long enough to determine the schedule (of shows that don't have discussion threads) and, b) learn to cope with the mental anguish when an unannounced schedule change occurs (Korean holidays yield special programs which pre-empt regular programming for a couple of weeks). Additionally, sometimes a show will disappear only to discover that it is being aired at a different time. Have fun!

It's location, location, location. I live on the North Side, and get excellent reception with a cheap Radio Shack rabbit ears. However, Lucy lives not too far away from me, and I think she has reception problems occasionally.
