Some time has passed, but I'm willing to go back to some hardware for going fishing ultrasound beacons!
I'm gathering some info about these beacons - so I've been walking around with my phone to fish some interesting sounds.
Some examples include a beacon in a starbucks close to montparnasse : interesting central frequency at 20khz, and two side freqs at +-250hz

The spectrogram shows it continues:

On another hand, I was in a coffee (called Ajami possibly), and I found a nice peak around 20khz:

Now, all I need is understand what is inside =)

For those curious, data and code are at https://github.com/kelu124/ultrasHound/tree/master/mobile  -- feel free to come and play.
