The other day I dialed up WWV on 10 MC and heard a strange 
sound, almost like an EPIRB.  Thinking that it might be one 
as I live near a lake, I called my neighbor who dialed up 
but by the time he turned on his receiver, the signal was 

Just a few moments ago, he called to say he was on WWV and 
heard the same signal.  I turned on my receiver and sure 
enough it is there.

It is almost masked by WWV, but when there is a fade, or 
when the tone is off I hear it.  I cannot determine a 
direction from my location.

Wonder is anyone else can hear it?
