About a week ago I noticed that WGBH's RF5 HD signal was much 
improved.  Last we heard, they had delayed the power increase to 
mid-March [their outreach email], but maybe things went much fast 
than expected.

The signal here in Swampscott [line of site to the towers] is not 
great  -- "33%" signal strength on my TV, whatever that means, but 
Boston UHF stations come in around 80% here.  The picture is 
watchable, even without extending the indoor Terk rabbit 
ears.  That's a huge difference from a month or 2 ago where maybe I 
could kinda sorta maybe get a picture with the rabbit ears fully 
extended, positioned just right, etc etc.

Anyone have info if they have indeed made the change to 34kW?
