I'm pretty sure I heard it about 2300.  There was a fast ditter just a bit under 8005 that showed up well on one of the KFS Kiwis.

Was a treat to see (and hear!)

1342 UTC 6 April 2021: Finally, I am hearing the new Hiker beacon! I parked the netSDR on 8005 all morning, hoping to find the time slot when there is propagation between there and here.
