This is noise that is internal to the satellite. I believe it is some
kind of image of the telemetry beacon that shows up in the
transponder's passband.

On some of the other XW-2s, you can also hear similar images at times
if you're in a quiet enough location to hear the transponder noise
floor, but its very prominent on XW-2D.
