A bigger antenna will help. Also, if your cable run from your antenna to the receiver/TV is unusally long, you might want to put a mast mount amp.

Here's my suggestion for your situation:
(2) vertically stacked(3ft spacing) XG91's from www.antennasdirect.com ,or just as good and less costly;(2)91 element Wideband Funke DC4591's from www.cpc.co.uk @$139 shipped.
Preamp;CM 7777 or Winegard AP-4800.
CM 9521 Rotor(so you can point towards Chicago-you might have better luck there anyway).
Or,if your truly obsessed,you can duplicate what I use for weak-signal Dx :›)
I'll provide more detail"if"you seriously want to pursue this.

Hello I live in central Illinois 50 miles north of bloomington, Illinois. I bought the U-75r antenna from radioshack and built a mast and put the antenna up. I'm trying to pick up the fox UHF channel out of bloomington at 187 degrees, and also i want to get the CBS,NBC, and ABC out of Peoria which is at 207 degrees and 55 miles away. When I pointed the antenna at the fox station i get nothing from there but i actually hardly get the ABC out of Peoria. I would think i would get the fox station since that is the only station this is in my geographical area. So my question is should i get the weingard hd-9095p. My mast is 10 ft long and is mounted on my roof which is 30 ft up. Thanks for the help.
I would recommend the 9095P. See my post in this thread. You will definately need a pre-amp to go along with the antenna. I'm using a winegard AP-4800.

Well,if you're on a tight budget,get a Winegard PR-9032(it's as good as the 9095,and much cheaper) and a CM7775 preamp from www.warrenelectronics.com .They're not far from you.Maybe get a rotor too.If you can afford 2 PR-9032's and stack them it WILL make a difference.
WYZZ is only at 3Kw,so you may be able to better pick up WCCU DT-26 Champaign,or Fox out of Chicago on DT-31.
