K38HE-D is a low-power religious television station on digital channel 38 in West Plains, Missouri. It covers parts of southern Missouri and north-central Arkansas. It is also seen on Fidelity Communications (channel 8) in West Plains and in Thayer, Missouri and Mammoth Spring, Arkansas (channel 18).

It carries local and nationally known programming from noon through 6am daily and network programming from 6am til noon from TCT. Operations are supported by donations from loyal viewers.

In 2009, a severe thunderstorm late on the evening of July 11 seriously damaged the new 85-foot (26 m) radio tower at its new TV studio, which holds the microwave-band dish antenna for the studio/transmitter link. In use for less than two weeks, it was made necessary because of a move in the studio location further away from the TV transmitter site, making the cost of leasing a much longer fiber-optic line than before prohibitive.

K38HE went off the air couple of times after a transmitter tube broke in the transmitter and returned to the air on October 9, 2009. However, this was short-lived. On Monday night September 21, 2009, K38HE went off the air after a tube broke in the transmitter. This station has returned to the air on Monday night October 19, 2009. K38HE went off the air after a rebuilt tube broke in the transmitter. K38HE has replaced the transmitter with a new tube and returned to the air Friday night October 23, 2009.
