Due to adulteration of the E.N.I.G.M.A. "designators" by others and not a match in the Conet Project they are never used.

I presume this is a continuous transmission from around 1300-1500z?

If it's in Asia/Middle East I will hear it here on 3802.6.

Will have a look for it this coming morning my time as I have five days off work... ;D

Not a trace on 3802.60 this way, tuned the frequency at odd occasions between 1000-1600z and nil.

Band noise very low, hearing many Asian fishing beacons and trawler chatter plus marine weather from New Zealand and Australia in the range 2-4MHz plus WWVH on 2.500MHz time signal 559 report.

In addition M89 on 3.157 and 3.597MHz CW out of China up to 529 report.

Your mystery beacon is not in this region, two mornings have found nothing this way, oh well, back to bed for me! ;D
