I have never witnessed the Mode-A beacon... untill now!
I don't believe that it has been reported to be working for a very long time...
I saw it tonight on the waterfall display on my modified Wilson CB mag-mount vertical during orbit # 56704, about 03:00UTC, for most of the pass. It did not appear to be modulated, although I could not hear it to know for sure, only by visual on the spectrum display.
