Good Morning
Also the schedule of HO-68 can be seen at the following link
At this link you can see when and which mode is active (Time is in UTC)
So far I have herd nothing also ( lol)
But I did not listen for the beacon,which I will do on the next path 16:05 
utc,Should be over North America
I hope this helps a little and that I am correct
Good Luck
