It can be heard with a narrow filter on a New Zealand online SDR also.
Amidst the CQ WW CW contest.
It is fairly strong on VK4KEN's South Australia kiwiSDR.



Negative copy here in California.

It is still there and can be copied on several online SDRs there in southeast Australia, around Australian noon time.
That suggests that the beacon is Australian.

Had a look for this beacon over the past two days and nights and nothing heard here, plenty of Tasmanian, Queensland, Victorian and South Australians heard plus the usual rabble from Indonesia
 and plenty of New Zealand amateurs but not "Y" on 7.025.54.

Is any one still hearing this or has it gone? 

If it is indeed within Australia I think I would be hearing it no problems at all...

Hermitage Flat, NSW.

Grid Square:  QF56dm.

Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, and a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

Nothing at all on this mystery beacon today, looked before and after noon time here and nil. Band is currently wide open (0550z) to just about all of Australia and across to New Zealand but zero on the "Y" beacon 7025.54 not a thing heard. 

So it's either ceased transmitting or it's not in Australia?

It appears it was only on the air during that CW contest.
