Been going for some time (an hour) as of 2318 UTC - sounds like FFG with punctuation as well.

TDoA on kiwiSDR network has put it in the SW UK area - right over London.

I did some Googling on 6974 kHz, 6974.4 kHz and 6975 kHz CW mode and came back with an old ENIGMA 2000 newsletter from 2005 talking about the M12 CW / ICW network operated by the Cubans using 6975 kHz. 

What's FFG?

Think it should be 5FG or 4FG rather than FFG, five figure groups, four figure groups, you get the idea.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

That does make a lot more sense (4FG or 5FG), I thought "FFG" was a callsign or other identifier.
