KHDF-CD is a low-power Class A digital television station in Las Vegas, Nevada, broadcasting locally in digital on UHF channel 19 as an Azteca América-affiliate. Founded on June 15, 1990, the station is owned by Northstar Media, LLC. Unlike many low-powered stations, it is seen on channel 63 through Cox cable.
KHDF-CD began with an original construction permit issued on June 15, 1990 to "Hey Buddy" ... Broadcasting Company. The station was to be built on UHF channel 19 and was assigned the callsign K19CS. It was licensed on March 16, 1992 to Charles K. "Harry" Tootle.
Programming mostly consisted of locally produced talk shows and seminars on videotape from the Conservative "Patriot" community, which were also shown on Tootle's other licensed station, K17CT. Thomas C. Griner purchased the station and gave it call letters KKJK-LP in November 1997. A new transmission system was constructed at a tower site in the northwest corner of the Las Vegas valley. Todd Communications installed the antenna and the station was engineered and run by Dan Nezgoda.
When the FCC released its initial digital channel allocations on April 21, 1997, it had assigned KUPN's digital companion channel to UHF channel 20. The allocations met with considerable resistance from low-power broadcasters who would be displaced by the digital channel allocations, and on February 17, 1998, the FCC issued a revised final DTV allocation table. KUPN's original allocation would have displaced low-power station KKJK-LP (now KHDF-CD) and a co-channel TBN station in Bullhead City, Arizona, so the FCC substituted UHF channel 22. In May 2000, Griner sold the station to Amanda Orrick Mintz. The station upgraded to a Class A license on December 21, 2001 and changed its call letters to KHDF-CA in July 2002. Una Vez Mas LLC acquired the station in April 2004.
During 2011, the station converted to a digital signal, as well as changed its calls to KHDF-CD.
After five years of having a billboard advertisng 'for lease' KHDF has placed a simulcast of their Azteca service on their 19.3 sub-channel. It's in 480i 4x3, while the main 19.1 is in 720p 16x9, effective 3 Apr1il 2017.
