WGBH/WGBX/ RF ch 5 is much better

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
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?
