Mistery satellite: mistery solved... well... almost.

Al Yamamah (with "h" at the end) is a region near Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.

Zarakaa Al Yamama is a personal name: "Zarakaa from Yamama"...  probably a 
ruler name... there is a street in Tripoli, Lybia, called Zarakaa Al Yamama II.

That decipher the enigma of the CW: VVV (as several beacons use it) CN 
(Morocco) /ZARKAA  AL YAMAMA... a Moroccan satellite named after a ruler.

Now the real difficult question: why on 144.1 MHz?????  Not even a 
satellite band!
