Dear Mr. Oglethorpe,
 
Thanks for writing about KBEJ-TV.  I can confirm for you that what 
you received was in fact the KBEJ transmitter.  You saw video of a 
test signal because the microwave link from Austin to Stonewall, 
Texas, went down.  There is an automatic video presence sensor that 
switches up the test generator whenever the studio-to-transmitter 
link (STL) is lost.
 
It is pretty cool that you can receive KBEJ in Shreveport.  Watch 
for the signal this weekend, as the tropo ducting forecast is for 
quite severe conditions, optimum for DXing.
 
Best regards,
 
Jerry Paonessa
