    I wouldn't waste my time calling the station... You'll probably find the person who answers the phone knows absolutely NOTHING about the station they work for, and, is too stupid to find anyone who does... This has been a common occurrence in my 58 years of TV DXing.

    Seems to me the best option would be to contact any media outlet in American Samoa, and ask that way. Still, it's no excuse---especially when they stream video, for cryin' out loud.

    Edit: at this time, even the live stream isn't working---but maybe they aren't 24 hours.

    Here you go cd637299:

    Back in 1990, the KVZK-TV technical director was Robert Blauvelt. In 2003 he moved to West Palm Beach, Florida as the engineer for WPEC-TV. email: rblauvelt@usa.net

    ** SAMOA AMERICAN. In response to Chris's question
    regarding KVZK-2 - it`s gone. It all DTV now. A number of other DXers
    (incl. myself) no longer receive KVZK-2 via 2-Es, which used to be
    regular during summer. It`s supposed to be on [DTV] Ch 5 but no-one has
    confirmed hearing even a faint carrier via Es (Geoff Wolfe, Numeralla

    Thanks Glenn. I still had Mr. Wolfe's email address in my phone, but didn't write yet.

    I still think it's sad that the KVZK staff seems to be in a cubbyhole, not giving out info like this. It took an Australian DXer!

    That was my main issue: whether any South Pacific DXers still see/hear it. I'm satisfied now.

    FCC controls WVUV/KKHJ FM there, but Dept. of the Interior handles the KVZK's. FCC info would have been easy to get.

    Now for someone to "adjust" Wikipedia...
