KPAX also operates a Class-A low-powered station in Kalispell, Montana, K18AJ channel 18; known on-air as KAJ, the station broadcasts the same schedule as KPAX, but with local ads and news segments. Coincidentally, the station has a name similar to the book and subsequent Kevin Spacey film K-PAX.
Channel 8 signed on for the first time in 1970 as a semi-satellite of KXLF-TV in Butte. In 1977, KPAX opened a new studio on Regent Street in Missoula and severed the electronic umbilical cord with Butte.
