KLOA-TV (Ridgecrest, CA)

KLOA-LP is a low power television station broadcasting on VHF channel 6 and serving the Antelope Valley area in California. Because the allocation of channel 6 in NTSC System M falls approximately within the lower fringes of the FM broadcast band, KLOA-LP takes advantage of the station's audio carrier, broadcasting on 87.75 MHz, and markets itself as a radio station. It airs a Country format under the moniker "Kickin' Country 87.7". According to the Federal Communications Commission, television stations must operate both the audio and video carriers; however, the carriers are not required to "accompany" each other, meaning that the audio and video can operate independently of one another. This means that KLOA-LP need not broadcast any particular image, as long as they broadcast a video signal. It is currently unknown what video signal the station broadcasts. [1]
