Heard a partial callsign "xxxx xxxx 40" o or perhaps ending in 040 calling another station on 6996 kHz USB. I think the second part of the callsign was "flight" but I'm not 100% sure on that.   At 1403 UTC, heard "nothing heard, out".  Sounded very much like an aircraft calling a ground station or maybe another aircraft, reminded me of USAF communications heard on 6739 USB, 11175 USB, etc.  Very professional radio operating procedures...unfortunately I missed most of the callsign.
