Westcott FJ80 Flash...No audible beep?

I recently purchased two Westcott FJ80 strobes.  I really like these strobes, but have been unable to get an audible beep when the flash recycles.  There is a setting to turn on the audible beep, and the manual says the audible beep will work in host mode.  I've talked with Westcott support, and they say that audible beep will only work if you are controlling an FJ200 or FJ400 with the FJ80.  I'm wondering if other people have been able to use an audible beep with their FJ80's.  It seems odd that the FJ80 won't produce an audible beep when it recycles.  If I'm operating near full power, I've taken shots before the flash recycles.  Very annoying.
