If we're getting technical here, isn't WWDV licensed to Zion, IL, and the tower and antenna is in Zion IL? Zion being part of Lake County IL. But I'm sure you already knew that.
>>>In Milwaukee County, although WWDV is just a few miles south of WIIL, on the same road with a similar power output, WWDV has a better signal there.<<<
Probably because WWDV is directional to the north. All of it's power is thrown in that direction.
>>>Back to WIIL, they have bays at the top of the tower. They're aimed to the south and east. It's regularly heard in parts of Michigan.<<<
Biggest mistake that station ever made (IMO), facing the bays the way they did. The station is so close to the lake, I would have faced them to the west, and been done with it. If their signal consistently reaches Michigan, it's being wasted.
