The US 10M beacon sub-band is 28.200 to 28.300. A current list (dated
2 Mar 2010!) is here:

The sub-band seem fairly full, but the frequency of 28.263 looks
usable with only 2 beacons listed for it. One of them is in Texas but
went QRT in '09. The other is in Spain.

That's just a quick look. More study may show a better frequency selection.
