I checked rabbitears.info on the Lafayette La. DMA listings and they added a k38of-d out of crowley yesterday. The channel is not on the air so i read further the channel was granted a license a couple of years ago. Anybody wanna take a guess what will be on there....i for sure dont know.

lots of people get construction permits and never put them on the air.

The station filed to cover its permit recently. I haven't been able to confirm whether or not it's operating.

Has there been a construction permit approved ? Is their a proposed signal pattern proposal ? If not Iceberg is probably correct in his post

I mapped the call sign. Its KLFY's old Transmitter Tower that was shortened to 1100 feet from 1800 feet in 2000 due to mechanical issues.

The power of K38OF will be 15,000 watts or less mandated by the FCC. I would not expect the signal to go very far I would also be surprised if the antenna is mounted near the top of the tower. Like ICE stated most of these stations never make it on the air

My apologies to you guys, I made a mistake. The tower I just posted about was bought by Family Vision and is used for Channel 31 KAJN which is operational and is 1100 Feet (The old KLFY Tower).

The K38OF-D Tower I been referring to is South of Crowley (per tv fool) and was KATC's Analog Tower and used until digital switch in 2009 (resulting in the two 1700 plus foot towers by Rayne). So in a way we have a working tower that was formerly KATC and maybe one day it may be put back on.

Well I got my answer but again I apologize for my mistake earlier, Thank You Gentlemen
