probably, yes (or similar):

my guess is: they capture the signal from EUTELSAT 13e (analog Wegener-Panda)
and code it into ADR, then uplink again to ASTRA.

Beside that "noise" they transmit some curious LF audio signals time by time
(about once per hour). ABout 4 different tones each lasting nearly one second. 
Does anyone know the meaning of this signals? (I asked Radio italia..., they 
confirmed: we got your question. That's all).
