Stumbled upon this while chasing dx on the ham bands.  I'm recording it as we speak and will post up the video as soon as I can process it.  Fairly loud into NE Ohio, about s9 with qsb.

Hiya Mr. Mike, I dunno, probably some sort of secure communication, but it's even stronger on 24.918, usb.  I suspect it's the same station.

I believe this is JT65?  This is a ham band.

Hi Chris, it is the ham bands, are you able to hear it? You think it may just be ham activity?

Ok, I think you got it right, Chris.  Sounds a lot like this:
