I bought a new toy, a HomeWorX 150 and did a channel scan. It got all the usual channels plus chan 23 which shows an NTSC color bar test pattern with 'KKMP-CD Chico 28' in the middle. It transmits the test pattern sporadically but the signal strength is always 96%.

None of my other devices pick up this channel.

Does anyone know anything about this channel?

Interesting. I see there is a KKPM-CD on RF28 but that is a "The Walk" affiliate
Nothing on the FCC site shows a KKMP nor a RF23 licensed to Chico

KKPM-CD was recently sold by Family Stations. It used to be commonly-owned with KRDT-CD 23 in Redding, and KRDT-CD simulcasted KKPM-CD. It may still be doing that despite the sale.
