COMSEC transmissions using a S4285 variant (2)

Secured burst transmission using a modified S4285 waveform [1] spotted around midnight on 4015 KHz/usb, the S4285 mode is 600bps and short interleaver.

After demodulation, the COMSEC preamble resembles 188-220D std and consists of 3 parts (my guess):
1) 60-bit Frame Sync (110000100000111000101111001011011101101001001011111010101100)
2) 5 x 128-bit strings, encoded Message Indicator (five times repeated)
3) 64-bit idling sequence (time to load the key?)

Preamble is followed by the encrypted data block which ends with "01" sequences.
