The SS2000 is, I believe, not a great choice for where you are.  The DB4 has better specs and should be available for less money.  Channel Master has made very good products although their 4221 and 4228 products were recently replaced.  Not to say the new ones are bad, just not much experience with them out there yet. 

BTW, isn't Chicago one of the markets where a stations is going back to a VHF-lo channel, post-transition?

Lots of good information about OTA reception at:

Check out the OTA knowledge base and the OTA antenna chart sticky threads.
