 From twitter:

The 30m beacon reports on the 00, 20, 40 min every hour, 40m beacon on 
the 10, 30, 50 every hour, 30m has been easier to rx .

     Apparently, the 30 meter schedule info published at 
http://www.projectbluehorizon.com/#input was incorrect at 5, 25, 45 
minutes.  arghhhh, been listening at wrong times.

     Also hearing a non position beacon at odd intervals on 30m.
