Rick.....HO-68 is not turned on every pass.  At that 2130 utc time, it was off, 
even though it flew over the US, and the beacon is always on no matter what.  
HO-68 usually has morning passes, coming from the north down to the south.  
Check the Amsat-bb here for latest schedule and mode, think it was just the 
other day infact.

Subject: [amsat-bb]  Working HO-68

Doing what I try to do every vacation which is try to spend a little time
back on the birds. I've yet to have a QSO on HO-68. I hear the beacon just
fine. But I just finished my 2nd pass from NJ and was unable to hear any
signals let alone myself coming back on any mode. Did I misread the
operating schedule or am I doing something wrong? MacDoppler told me there
was a good pass to this part of the world are around 21:30 my time. Great
beacon strength but nobody else was home.
