Public license information
WLJC-TV, virtual channel 65 (VHF digital channel 7), is a Cozi TV-affiliated television station serving Lexington, Kentucky, United States that is licensed to Beattyville. The station is owned by local minister Margaret Drake and her ministry, The Hour of Harvest, Inc. WLJC's studios are located on Radio Station Loop north of Beattyville, and its transmitter is located on Tip Top Road.
On cable, the station is available on Charter Spectrum in the Lexington and Hazard areas. The main WLJC feed is also carried on channels 21 (SD) and 521 (HD) via Frankfort Plant Board in the state capital of Frankfort.
The station first signed on the air on October 18, 1982 and claims to be the oldest Christian television station in Kentucky. The Hour of Harvest, Inc. also owns two Christian radio stations, Air 1 outlet WLJC-FM and K-LOVE outlet WEBF.
In November 2018, WLJC's main channel began airing Cozi TV programming (which moved from 65.6; that subchannel now airs Start TV).
The station's digital channel is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|
|65.7||H&I||Heroes & Icons|
WLJC-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 65, in July 2007. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition VHF channel 7. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 65, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
WLJC-TV's digital signal covers much of eastern and central Kentucky as a result of its relatively high antenna position at 322 meters HAAT and a power level of 185,000 watts on the VHF band. Its primary coverage area includes the Lexington metropolitan area, London, and Hazard. Its fringe contour even reaches areas as far north as Maysville, as far east as Pikeville, as far west as Frankfort, and as far south as the Tennessee state line around Middlesboro.
