That was a Morse code message, using common abbreviations to save time. Here it is translated into plain language:
[CQ=] Calling any station, [de=] from radio station KYHP. [QTC?=] How many telegrams have you to send? [K=] Go ahead, I'm listening.
The first letter K means that the station was a US station; however, it may or may not have actually been located there.
The call sign KYHP has apparently been reassigned to a commercial TV station.
