Some 'before the power increase' and 'after the power increase' feedback would be VERY helpful.
I'm 45 miles south, with a Radio Shack VU-120 in the attic, about 20 feet below line of sight. After transition, you and WUSA virtually disappeared, only occasionally at night would either my older Samsung tuner or GE CECB decode you. Your signal was near threshhold most of the time, however. Upon power increase, nighttime reception became reliable, and daytime reception went from zero to 40% reliability.
I've since moved the antenna from the center of the attic to one end, getting better isolation form the house wiring and ceiling fans. Now I have 100% reliable reception of you and about 80% of WUSA (outages during the day, mostly.) Of note, a compact fluorescent light about 15 feet away on the floor below will knock you (and WUSA) almost completely out and cause hits on WRC, WTTG, and WDCA.
