Though the career of San Antonio's FOX 29 only goes back to December of 1987, its analog farewell is more reminiscent of an earlier time in American broadcasting history. The sign-off is delivered by an on-screen announcer behind an old-school radio microphone reading from a script (for some reason the one who wrote it did not have the announcer identify himself). As he begins to bid the viewers good-night, the camera backs up to reveal a video screen playing an SSB film, presumably one of many produced by the United States Air Force over the years. After that, it's two minutes of the classic "Indian Head" test pattern and tone.

NOTE: The video files featured on this website are taken from my VHS home recordings of over-the-air and cable video captures, clips contributed by others and clips downloaded from YouTube and similar sites. The quality varies from clip to clip, due to TV reception and recording issues.
