That could have come from Arizona, right here in the Springs, Omaha, Washington, Japan, Germany, Horn of Africa, aboard a ship someplace. Probably was terrestrial, though.

It might show up on 60m, 30m, 160m, LF (2200m, 136KHz), etc. as it depends on who's the intended audience and who's pressing the key. Honestly, I think the reason the FCC and the military have so much shared spectrum is so that theater commanders and the high command can decide what band to use based on the ham DX activity.
