Ham radio uses more than just analog to transmit. There is DMR, D-STAR and Yaesu Fusion. Maybe that's what you're hearing. Could be the digital buzz on the frequencies you are monitoring.

Any chance there's something near by that could be causing interference with your scanner? Something that could be emitting power?

N8IAA and Rt169Radio gave some great pointers. It could be a birdie, some local signal, or something that is digital.

I would suggest looking at the Radio Reference's Amateur Radio Frequency Database or use another online database like Repeater Book (https://www.repeaterbook.com/) to find what type of repeater you are picking up.

Good Luck.
