AO-40 2.4 GHz S1 beacon

At 08:10:38 UTC this morning (02 dec), AO-40 reached MA/phase 15.  Telemetry
info said that the S1 2.4 Ghz beacon was switched ON.
Simultaneously, the 145.898 MHz beacon frequency actually jumped and came
back in a few seconds, showing that a new device was connected to the power
Again, at 08:41:06 UTC, the 2m beacon frequency jumped again, showing that
the previous load was disconnected.
I scanned carefully the 2400.000 to 2402.000 MHz band, but didn't receive
and potential AO-40 beacon signals.
If wonder if my 13 cm reception chain is deaf (23 turns helix + 2880 Drake
converter) or if the sat squint was not good enough for Europe.
Any positive results somewhere else ?
