We get these here too - most of the dots and dashes appear at repetitive times every day - related to (mostly!) power meter "Turtles" in peoples meters which inject signals back to the local substation across the 110/240/7.5Kw transformers - it used to be horrid at 137kHZ  - and I managed to get the electrical utility to revert back a manual reading meter at home-  and then installed a whole house RF filter ( 2 x 220A) on incoming supply which helped a little more -
  I still get the interference but its a lot better, that and choking the incoming Cable tv cable outside in the roadside podium with a large "J" ferrite with 15T - that helped clear up a load of VLF noise too -  Cant fix the fenceless dog interference yet... :-(
Unless its Aliens again....
