Call AA0AAA ? Opera over Es'hail-2 / QO-100 #opera

Graham
 

Usually ,  Opera  has its  share of  ' odd  calls  on 136 KHz  and  occasionally 477 

However,  one  decode  of the  call  AA0AAA  , occurred  at  0801 , all  Rx
stations ,  monitoring  off  air  10GHz down link  

I can  find  no  trace of the  call  on the  web ..but  qra locator JN44CB appears to  of been uploaded to the  system , by the  Opera  app

The AA block is assigned to the USA.

The AA 2x3 callsign format is not being assigned by the FCC to Amateur radio licensees.

It's a pirate, if decoded correctly.

Tnx Ev, 

I thought as much , 

The  identical  time  stamp is indicative  of a  simultaneous   'off air'  decode
one station, one  call , then that's open to  random  noise  , note the rx   time stamp is from
the  decode  pc  clock

Looking back over the  last 24 Hrs  spots ,  there is  only  one  false  decode  listed ,
