Nice catch. That is a TIS-B code. Similar to ADS-B but the codes are randomly assigned, not tied to an aircraft. It is used a lot by jets out of Nellis, then turned off when they enter the ranges. Looks like they only briefly turned on the transmitter. The altitude would indicate a U-2 or more likely a high altitude UAV. U-2 usually transmit ADS-B.
