It's a Lindos test from a machine of this type: http://www.lindos.co.uk/la100oldl.jpg As well as fixed frequency tones and sweeps the chirpy part (which sounds like a dial-up modem) contains data that the receiving machine can decode - you can put the name of the station or even a short message there.
