Unid PSK-2 signals 125.3Bd and 127.3Bd

These two PSK-2 signals has been heard on 12499.0 KHz (06 August, 2016) and 22499.0 KHz (10 May, 2016) on USB. Perhaps a coincidence but, unless a little variance of ~ 140 Hz, their central frequencies differ of 10KHz: for that reason I shifted up the 22499 KHz signal of just 140 Hz in order to find differences and similarities.

The two signals exhibit different manipulation speeds: 125.3 and 127.3 Baud, although the sub-carrier frequency have (reasonably) the same value of 830 Hz (it's to note the better recording quality of the 22499 KHz signal).

For what concerns the modulation, both the two signals use the PSK-2 technique (figs. 3,4)

The analysis of the demodulated bitstreams show a 141-bit period for the 22499 KHz signals and a 14-bit period for the 12499 KHz signal (fig. 5).

These signals are perhaps produced by the same modem/equipment running at different speeds, but it's only my supposition. As far as I know, user(s) is unidentified: comments and help in this direction are welcome.
