Strange Freq Found?

Strange Freq Found?

I found a strange frequency last night scanning the 900 MHz band in
all my years of scanning have never heard.  Does anyone know what this
is?

It was at 947.7500 and had a continuous carrier with what sounded like
a 1.5Khz to 2KHz beep every 5 seconds or so that maybe had a duration
of .5 seconds.  Not a very strong signal but went on for hours...

This was not a repeater or like anything I have ever heard before. If
I hear it again I will record it for reference.  Checking the
frequency this morning I have the continuous carrier but no tone, it's
kind of like an open mic but no background noise heard.

Check the FCC site to see who the owner is?
