I am on the north side near Devon & Western and working on setting up a link between my QTH and one or the Winston Towers building top, 12th, floor.

Chicago or NW Indiana

Moved to NW Indiana recently and looking for other AREDN stations.  I am near Michigan City, between Chicago and South Bend, right on the lake.  My systems are running but not in a great location yet, but have access to a very nice tower, nearly 200 feet up.  But waiting to put anything there till I see if there are any other stations around.

How about no.

Unfortunately using a commercial band aggregator and ham downlink isn't exactly emergency ready. 

I am near downtown Chicago. (Bridgeport) And want to set up a node. Not sure which bands yet because I don't really have the money to buy one of the routers right now. (College sucks like that.)  I don't have access to a very tall location either. Max is somewhere over my the roof of my 2 story house. For referance on 2m and 70cm I can get out all the way past O'Hare air port on 5 watts with the antenna on the peak of my roof.

This effort is ongoing. It was delayed a year due to coronavirus, but the hardware is in my basement and ready to be deployed. I looked you up on qrz and i don't think you will get line of sight to any of the proposed sites, but it is a start.

Check that link again for an update.  Looks like in the coming months there will be a real build out in the north shore area.
