I just tuned to 8992Khz at around 05:30 UTC to hear this curiosity, I've read about it before but tonight its active as ever albeit intermittent in 3 to 5 minutes between calls, just heard it again at around 05:44UTC now.

Hello. That is part of the USAF HF-GCS system. You heard what is called an EAM or Emergency Action Message. Read more about them here: EAM

Look for increases of EAMs on 8.992 as well as the other HF Global freqs due to the rising tensions in the Gulf with Isreal positioning nuclear subs off of Iran's coastline. Could get interesting. I would suspect that our military's alert status would increase if it already hasn't.
