Those TIS transmitters are terrible for spurs.

Had one within 100M of my QTH on 88.1 that was always going in to SWR shutdown. But the NFM oscillator was always 30+ on the meter at 4894.4 KHz ::)

Peace!

I don't think this is a spur.  Whenever I see 10m lit up, I check for this station, but I haven't caught it yet.  Very nice catch BDM!

I presume you actually mean 33420 when you say 33.420

Neither do I.  believe it's a link of some type. I seem to remember this portion of the band was used for links or even fast food rest drive through wireless.

More info below on this freq and FL TIS feeds using it for feed links

33,420 (MIS) WQIN663 City of Orlando, 110 N Andes Ave; active status with these calls per the FCC dB, March, 2013. Heard for several years, this is apparently the feed or auxiliary feed for the four Orlando 1650 kHz MIS collectively assigned the calls WQEL638 (ex-WQDC703). Audio includes Melbourne NOAA Weather Radio between local segments.

33,420 (MIS) WQGH907 City of Cape Coral, 1015 Cultural Park Blvd; active status with these calls per FCC dB, March, 2013. Not confirmed but suspect it is the feed or auxiliary feed for the City of Cape Coral WQGU312 1610 kHz MIS.
