If the three alphas have three end symbols, then alpha/bravo would be indicating rows or columns (since the three different alphas would presumably be indicating the three corner pieces).
BUT if the one alpha with the last symbol that can't be made out is the same as one of the other two, then alpha could refer to column or row. I'm assuming this will be the case.
This at least means we've got four different 'final' symbols - a dot, a divide, a double dot, and a dash. That one rough image is throwing a wrench in it all right now

If we take the two pieces we have already there are actually only 2 valid QR code sizes, given that each piece is 7x7 pixels. The two valid sizes are either 21x21 which would be a 3x3 grid or 49x49 pixels which would be a 7x7 grid. There are actually larger sizes that would also work but they would have a lot of pieces so I'm ruling them out for now. If we can get one more piece I could probably confirm or deny the smaller grid but given there are 7-1 symbols under them I'm leaning towards a 7x7 grid. As more people get their ID's and post their pieces maybe we can figure out the symbols and the placements of the QR code pieces.
Now that we have more pieces coming in I believe it is a 49x49 pixel QR code which would be 7x7 of these pieces. I think the codes at the bottom are locations within that grid. The alpha-0 would be the bottom left corner, bravo would be the next column, etc. I'd thought that there may have been multiple smaller QR codes but the two bravo pieces we've seen made me think it is one big QR code as they don't have the correct formatting for a small QR code. I've not seen good scans of the last symbols yet but I would expect them to look like numbers. I'll try and find some time to post a grid to the wiki later to track it if the pieces we get in suggest this method is correct.

How is this looking? Close-ish? Which pieces did I miss???

What about this, Nine QR bits?
I think we've seen two that say ALPHA.
So what if the extra symbol tells us what row it's on?

is anyone else thinking that the symbols in the circles is a Cipher?
