Interesting digital sounding voice comms monitored last night on 4739 kHz in USB. Apparently this was a crosspatch being utilized by the US Navy TOC in Jacksonville, FL, allowing transmissions from a UHF net to be heard by their players on HF. I am told this was a DAMA voice channel and the robotic sounding comms are 2.4kbps ANDVT.
