38P7.2 is an unnamed period 7 oscillator discovered by Nicolay Beluchenko on February 17, 2009.^{[1]} It provides six sparks in generation 4 that are useful in creating nontrivial oscillators of higher periods such as snacker on 38P7.2. A variation of this oscillator can be created by displacing one half of the oscillator by two cells.
gmc_nxtman found an 18glider synthesis of this oscillator on August 13, 2017.^{[2]} Goldtiger997 improved this to 14 gliders on February 12, 2018.^{[3]}
