KEHO-LD is a low-power television station in Houston, Texas, owned by Elva Rosa and Moises Garza, with a permit to build a digital station on channel 49.

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 WBRZ-TV 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 existing broadcaster KPXB-TV, transmitting on channel 24, displays channel 49 via PSIP.
