K36JH-D is a low-power television station in Barstow, California, broadcasting locally on channel 36. It was an affiliate of Tele Vida Abundante. Founded March 14, 2007, the station was owned by David Primm.

The station originally received an original construction permit to broadcast on channel 16 until October 19, 2007, when the station moved to channel 36 to prevent interference from public safety radio operations in Los Angeles County. The station was granted a special temporary authority license by the FCC until March 6, 2008, when the station became licensed.

In April 2015, the license was transferred from David Primm of San Francisco, CA to Brent Gaddis of Apple Valley, CA.

On March 1, 2017, K36JH ceased analog service and completed a digital flash cut and began DTV service from their Quartzsite Peak site with two standard definition channels, 36.1 and 36.2. The station was licensed for digital operation on March 28, 2017, and changed its call sign to K36JH-D.

Programming on 36.1 is documentaries and other content from NASA TV.
