Note: The call sign STRATO CONTROL was used on UHF and is the equivalent to the HF call sign MAINSAIL. C/S STRATO CONTROL was used on 311.0 SAC (Pri) and 321.0 SAC (Sec). SAC (Strategic Air Command) was disestablished in 1992 and reactivated as the Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC) in 2009. This Command assumes control of all USAF bomber aircraft and the intercontinental ballistic missile force.

Sounds like you caught the aircraft in comms with the satellite coordination centre requesting to turn off the SATCOM link.

What I got from the recording is as follows:
20:02Z This is UNCLE JOE on order wire;
20:02Z NO ID?: "[unintelligible*] We are ready to terminate digital and analog at this time."
20:02Z NO ID?: "3, 2, 1."
