What am I hearing??

This signal might be common but I've not heard it before!  On 7 Dec 02
at 2030 UTC from Central California there was CW telemetry with a rough
T1 note.  The telemetry was composed of multiple three number
groups followed by two HI's.  CW rate was about ten WPM.  The beam
heading was NNW on a frequency of 145.971.  The note seemed to be
modulated at a 20 hertz rate producing a gargling sound.
     At the time AO10, SO41, RS15, SO33 and MO46 in view.  Could it be
that SO33 faulted to CW at the time and I was hearing one third the
beacon frequency?  Not likely but interesting indeed.  Cliff K7RR
