(translator of KLTJ, Galveston, Texas) Profile
(translator of KLTJ, Galveston, Texas) CDBS
KDHU-LD, virtual channel 50 (VHF digital channel 7), is a low-power television station licensed to Houston, Texas, United States. It is a translator of Galveston-licensed Daystar owned-and-operated station KLTJ (channel 22) which is owned by Word of God Fellowship, a subsidiary of the Daystar Television Network. KDHU-LD's transmitter is located near Missouri City, in unincorporated northeastern Fort Bend County; its parent station maintains studios on Gemini Avenue in Clear Lake.
The station was originally licensed to Louise, Texas as K50HN on analog channel 50 in 2003, with a transmitter on County Road 404 east of El Campo, Texas. It is unknown when the station actually went on the air, but it went silent on December 4, 2006, due to transmitter failure.
The station's call sign was changed to KDHU-LP on June 23, 2006.
The station's channel 7 license was granted December 27, 2010.
It is currently broadcasting a direct feed from the Daystar network, as opposed to rebroadcasting co-owned KLTJ which aired some locally produced programs, until they were dropped to become a direct feed affiliate.
Its low (300 watt) power and VHF band placement make the station difficult to receive in most parts of the Houston area. The station has filed to increase its power to 3 kW.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
