Mystery "Ä" morse station

Jim logged this mystery station on two occasions. No idea who or what this is. It looks like the "ä" is being used as separative just like PVO uses "?".

Could this station be related to PVO??? Any info is most welcome.

The same station has been reported by Fritz since 2004. He writes the "ä" as "aa". The curious station appeared on at least 7 different frequencies between 2004 and 2007. See below.
