  What is Chicagoland?  Good question...it encompasses all of Metro Chicago and Cook County, as well as the "collar" counties of Lake, DuPage, Will, Kane, Grundy and Kendall, as well as Lake County, Indiana.  It's a big area, and where you live in the Chicagoland region will in part determine which stations you can hear.  The quality of your receiver and type of antenna you're using will also affect this.
