Chicago stations no longer on the air & revised stations still on the air in digital

As of May 5th, 2018, the following stations have signed off:

WHNW-LD Gary, IN (RF 18)

WAAA-LP on RF 49 signed off years ago.

If W46EB was ever on, they're off the air.

WOCH-CD (RF 49)

WYCC Chicago (RF 21) This station is now channel sharing with WTTW on RF 47 (still maps to 20.1, & affiliates with Mhz Worldview)

WBBM-LD (RF 26) They shut it off, after getting better coverage on WMEU-CD on RF 32, by leasing bandwidth on this station (Mapped to 48.3 for CBS)

WSNS (RF 45) Now channel sharing with WMAQ-TV on RF 29 (still maps to 44.1 & 44.2)

WRJK-LD (RF 24) This station stopped broadcasting in analog 3 years ago, & maps to 22.1 on digital)
