Unid 2400Bd QPSK burst system

This mode employ 4-ary phase-shift keying (QPSK) on a single 1800 Hz carrier as the modulation technique for data transmission, the modulation of the carrier is a constant 2400 symbols/sec waveform.

Fig. 1
Each transmission consists of four 870 ms bursts each composed of a preamble followed by 21 data blocks (Figure 2); each data block is composed of 90 QPSK symbols: 31 known symbols probe followed by 59 (unknown) data symbols (Figs 3,4).

These transmissions have been heard up & running for some hours on 10410.0 KHz/USB on 18 May morning, sometimes a second station has been heard working in a ARQ-like mode (Fig. 5).

No idea about the source and the name of such system.
Other unid transmissions using QPSK bursts modulated at 2400 symbols/sec are discussed here:

--> update

The same transmissions have been heard also by cryptomatser and are discussed in radioscanner.ru forum by him and KarapuZ,  here the link:
