unknown 2400Bd QPSK? datalink

Today a new? datalink is active on HF, probably modem experiments..
2x stations exchanging datas, sending 2 bursts each time & changing frequency from time to time..


The system seems to be a 2400Bd QPSK waveform, but notice the constellation isn’t too clean… Signals Analyzer shows an ACF of ~37.45ms and bursts are ~1.765s long in this working mode.
Both stations were strong in the mobile HF, middle east france, but one station was fading very quickly and sometimes not heard at all..

I wonder if this traffic is related to 10244u

Datamode heard on 18MHz & 7MHz, so far

unid users of HF packet Q15X25

Upper part is a sample downloaded here
Lower part is from 6790.0 USB heard tonight
This net is a spanish speaking one, probably from Central or South America
I’m not sure if they are pirates or legits, I never succeed in decoding Q15X25 frames using that MixW software + its additional Q15X25dll.dll
Callsign heard in the past: BANDERA



2400Bd QPSK ACF=600ms

Continuous mode, PSK carrier at 1800Hz, ACF measured 600ms, QPSK modulation?

Spotted on 9389.0 USB & 9248.0 USB tonight at fair to weak levels
Already logged on 10718.0 USB, 18140.0 USB & 19304.0 USB
