Heard again 0113 UTC 16 Dec 2018 - they were on later than usual. Alternating tones, then distorted OM speech. I now think this is more likely technical difficulties vs encryption.
Off at 0121

0108 UTC -  Heard the alternating tones and OM transmission then off at 0111 UTC Dec. 22, 2018. Signal was very weak but could make out the voice communication not sure of the language.

0058 UTC 3 Jan 2018 - On a little early last night. Very strong signal, but we had a good opening on 43m to South America with signals from Lupo Radio and the UNID pirate on 6934.8 kHz.

I've noticed these transmissions nightly lately on the SDR recordings. Same format as always, and starting around 0100 UTC.
