It was heard from Warwickshire to Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Somerset, these counties aren't all in close proximity and all heard at the same time, over hundreds of miles. There are air shows here every year and with typhoons flying with sonic booms and it has never caused a fuss in even near counties.
link to video?

I could understand if it were a milliatary helecopter and also beleive that it had that kind of transmission but someone on here has to be a helecopter pilot or know one they can ask?

Yup thats normal jet sounds, the cut out is simple the engines pointing another direction, jets were designed to be as quiet as possible, believe it or not
