It does have a little to do with a heart. Not a real one, though, but a symbolic ("Valentine") one.

Signal from a Radar detector? (Valentine One) :P

Umm... I give up.

Looks like my attempt to mislead you worked. So another nice try.
Another hint: Notice how the high part of the signal initially is relatively flat, then it drops down and fluctuates wildly, rises and falls while still fluctuating, and then goes nearly flat again.

It is definitely possible to make a radar detector that outputs that kind of signal, but I'm not aware of any that do. (Same goes for fuel economy instrumentation equipment.) A modified version of that kind of signal was once used for Internet access a long time ago.

If you tell me how big the axes are, I'll take a guess. i.e. is that volts or mV, seconds or usec.

And a request for another hint: Does the signal typically repeat for seconds, hours, or years?

That kind of signal could potentially be used to synchronize computer clocks. Only it is much more common to use NTP now that 24/7 Internet access is popular.

It's voltage vs. time. The units are in the picture. It repeats many, many times a second.

The units may be there, but I can't read them. What's the frequency, Kenneth?

DC, 100mhz, M = 10usec, MPos = 154.2usec, 292mV
