8-ary constellation bursts at 12800bps data rate (3)

This is a follow-up of the posts about the "clusters" of S4539 12800bps bursts, all posts including this one are grouped here.
Since a couple of days it's possible to hear both the peers, don't know if it's due to new test sites or increased powers but previously the "called" station was not heard (or maybe it did not even exist). As you see, the "called" listens on f2 while it simultaneously replies on f1 (the same for f2/f3 and in all the six clusters) as well as the "caller" station puts its call on f2 while it simultaneously listens on f1 (Fig. 1); the interval between the call and the reply is about 319 ms. Maybe they use staring and synched SDRs?

This simultaneity is also noted between the lower frequency of a cluster and the higher frequency of the preceding one, as shown in Fig. 2. Particularly, Figure 3 shows the timings between the last and the first cluster (the different signal strengths in Fig. 3 depend on the different locations of the two used KiwiSDRs).

The raw demodulation exhibits strong 7680-bit period that make 1280 QAM64 symbols (Fig. 4).

  1. Good job, Antonio.
    This is a mistery signal yet very interesting.
