It could be a pulsating star or something else. But the behavior of a pulsar is so similar to rotating beacon (extremely regular intervals, gradually slowing down rate, the magnitude of rates is in "ball park" of angular momentum of collapsed stars, etc) that it is VERY LIKELY that it is a rotating beacon. Especially when you have numerous stars behaving that way.
