Check this out. Any ideas as to what it is? (BTW, the chattering noise in the background is just RFI from the phone. It’s not part of the message.)

    It’s a fax machine. What you are hearing is the calling tone (CNG). Googling it finds this which has a linked WAV file:

    I’ve never heard one do the weird bursts as heard on your recording but the pitch is definitely correct. I recognized it immediately.
