Analog-to-digital conversion

KZJL discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 61, on June 12, 2009, as part of federally mandated transition from analog to digital television.[2] The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 44, using PSIP to display KZJL's virtual channel as 61 on digital television receivers, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
