The aircraft version is an ELT and transmits on 121.5 and 
403 or so as I recall.  The EPRBS are in the UHF range and 
has a similar warble.

That is the kind of warble I hear near 10 mc and am 
wondering if anyone else is hearing it?  I agree it 
shouldn't be there, but this is two times in less than a 
week I have heard it.

I just tuned my Icom R-75 to 10002.5 and it is still there. 
Can anyone else hear it?
