UNID CW, 6970 khz., 0509 UTC, 7/16/2013

Tuned into 6970 khz. at 0509z and heard some intermittent, slow CW, no characters, a series of 5 dits, then a dash, then another series of 5 dits, then nothing.

I'm guessing it may have been a ham tuned below band by accident.  Unfortunately, I only tuned in during the last three 'characters'.  Kept the radio on the frequency for a while -- nothing.
