Question WEIRD CW ON 28.174 USB


Scanning through the CW part of 10 meters and come across this odd sound, i tried to reply back in CW but it just does the same tone over and over.

What is it?

I was going to say a beacon but there is no ID in the recording. Is there one?

Try 'inverting' the audio. The 'gaps' being the characters, the tone being 'background'. Or play it backwards??

Perhaps a 10m repeater? It does have the typical female voice indicating the freq. Still no ID. Maybe there is something wrong on their end and not getting the ID in.

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
but I have become comfortably numb.

I heard this yesterday also. The voice prompts you hear is his IC-7000 announcing the operating mode. I don't know what the weird tone is.
