LUSAT-1 (LO-19) CW Beacon on 437.125 KHz quit transmiting on Dec-2012 after 23 years of operation, only a very weak carrier from local osc could be copied. 

Recent reports state that LUSAT was again heard, today we received a regular signal compatible with LUSAT on 437.125 +/- Doppler in two passes.

By the strong level and QRG of the signal it corresponds to LUSAT.

Modulation is CW without a morse logic, just some dots, regular spaces and sometime a dash, no information is decoded, not always the same sequence or message.
