"Chicken" on 6938.4 kHz USB 2355Z Nov 13

Not sure what the official name of this digital mode is; I've been calling it the "Chicken" for decades because of its "bwuk-bwuk-bwuk-bwaaaak" sound. Quite strong here tonight.

I'm pretty sure you're hearing Link-11

I suspected it was Link-11. I've been hearing it for decades. It does sound like a chicken to me.  :D
