I just checked now and the signal is now strong when I point down that way. The HD locks in most of the time and WCRB is indeed on the HD2. 

I wonder if they are running the higher-powered HD (I believe it's 10% of the analog carrier) that FM stations were authorized for several years ago?  Since this is a newly upgraded installation perhaps they upped the HD power, which most existing HD stations did not do since they already have an HD installation in place and did not want to start over.
