It's station KJJ372.

Most TV and radio stations have auxiliary frequencies in the VHF and now more often in the UHF bands. They use these secondary allocations for all sorts of things, studio-to-transmitter links, remote pickup units, field source linking. Think about how much of a PITA it would be to put a MF AM radio on a helicopter compared to a UHF FM radio.

If you scan around you'll find a lot of them across 160-170 and 450-455.
