Yes, but it was also not transmitting for 17.5 hours now, or at least
whatever component of that time that it was still within range of the
United States. It may or may not get there and it may or may not wake
up enough to transmit.
But it is also on 144.390, so if you're listening for one, you're
listening for both.
