Emergency Activation Message (EAM)

I am no longer as young as I once was (and I have homework) so I stayed in tonight.  After while I decided to start messing around with the radio, and I came across an emergency activation message.

Emergency activation messages are coded messages of high importance sent by the military.  I end up picking them up the loudest on 6740 KHz, upper sideband.  I have picked them up on 8992, but the signal isn't as strong.
When I came across my first one I mistakenly believed it to be a numbers station.  While it is not quite as exciting, this is an example of the weird shit that I look for on the radio.
