KEHO-LD, virtual channel 32 (UHF digital channel 29), is a low-powered Court TV-affiliated television station licensed to Houston, Texas, United States. Owned by HC2 Holdings, it is a sister station to Spanish religious station KZHO-LD (channel 38). The station's transmitter is located on Clara Road north of Jacinto City.

History[edit]

The station started in 2007 as K13ZD on analog channel 13 in Beaumont, Texas,[1] though the station never was on the air in the Beaumont area (typical of a lot of low power TV signals licensed to the Beaumont market). The call sign changed to KEHO-LP on August 28, 2008.

Citing interference from ABC affiliate WBRZ-TV (channel 2) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the station applied to construct its digital signal on channel 49, and that application was granted on January 27, 2010.[2] At that time, the call sign was changed to KEHO-LD.

On July 26, 2010, the station was sold to Elva Rosa and Moises Garza for $300,000.[3]

On January 12, 2011, the FCC approved the move of the station's transmitter to the Chase Tower in downtown Houston.[4] This move colocates KEHO's transmitter with that of sister station KZHO-LD.

Under the ATSC standard governing PSIP,[5] when it signs on, KEHO must display channel 24 to tuners because Ion Television affiliate KPXB-TV, transmitting on channel 24, displays channel 49 via PSIP.

Digital channels[edit]

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
