History

In August 2005, KTXX became the 70th Air America Radio affiliate.[2] In December 2006, the station dropped Air America and switched to a new format.[3] According to BMP's San Antonio web page, the station broadcast a mix of Contemporary Spanish Christian Music, satellite news, and commentary.[4]

Former logo

In 2009, La Luz became "La Lupe 103.1 FM" playing Spanish favorites. KTXX dropped its Spanish Christian talk format. On November 2, 2009, the station changed their call letters to "KHHL". In 2010, the station changed formats once again to Spanish-language sports talk, branded as ESPN Deportes.

Signal issues

KHHL's reach is hindered in the San Antonio metropolitan area because it is a rimshot signal located roughly 50 miles southeast of the city's center, in rural Karnes City. Like many other rimshot signals in other markets, this has hindered the success of the station, and hence they have never made a serious impact in the San Antonio ratings.

In June 2012, KHHL was granted a construction permit by the FCC to upgrade its broadcast facilities and increase its effective radiated power.
