i've been monitoring and recording this for the 10 mins or so and looked up the frequency and ran across this post: http://mt-milcom.blogspot.com/2006/06/valiant-shield-2006.html which seems to indicate the frequency is a US Navy one.

EDIT: the comms are hard to copy but i'm recording them in hopes of getting a callsign. one callsign sounded like "Trumpet Blower".
EDIT 2: callsign was Lima Tango. also heard Gulf Whiskey, Delta Foxtrot, Romeo Tango, Quebec Romeo, Vampire and...
Cougar 31 which i believe is this: COUGAR EA-18G VAQ-139, NAS Whidbey Island, WA
EDIT 3: "We're engaging Delta birds, over"
EDIT 4: Now with Audio. i cut out most long pauses between transitions. Highlights around 15:15 in: "Gulf Whisky this is Delta track Romeo Tango 311  .... Can you please identify" followed by "Gulf Whisky all positively identified....authenticated IR... hostile.. authenticated time 2240 Quebec Romeo over. " and then "Gulf Whiskey this is Delta track Romeo Tango 336...reengaging." and "Gulf whiskey this is Delta Cougar 31 RTB safe red, maintain comms until RTB" followed by more comms

Sounds like a carrier strike group composite training unit exercise (COMPTUEX). GOLF WHISKEY is probably the net control station. I have heard similar activity on 3265, 5425, 5404, 6235, 6249.5, 11053.5, etc.
