Did Frodo hear the horn of Gondor? Can't Post

It may be the case that the book mentions this and I missed it, but when Boromir blows the horn of Gondor, does Frodo hear it? If so, why does he not turn back?

I'm happy with both genuine and speculative answers, I thought that maybe he confuses it for an Urúk-hai horn?

"...For if joyful is the fountain that rises in the sun, its springs are in the wells of sorrow unfathomed at the foundations of the Earth"
