In addition to AO-51, GO-32 is in a polar orbit, is 9k6, and is quite loud. It is always a good signal source for me. Also, last time I checked PO-34 and SO-33 were both still transmitting short 9k6 timestamps or telem. Both are in lower inclination orbits and I don't know if you'd even see them from Alaska, but us in the lower 49 can use those for signal sources.
Good Luck listening for the cubesats!

Pass #14375 per NOVA. PIcked up tlm about elev=5 with 11-elem yagi with no preamp and Doppler about +8 KHz. Not full copy but enough to demonstrate the sw is working. I printed raw data on both MixW2 and tlmEcho, so I would guess things are OK for looking for CAPE-1 tomorrow night (3/27 0801 utc).
Here's the MixW2 output:
Open ABCD: PLCTL-8>PLCTL-8>UI,?,F0: PLCTL Mode:2 TXA:0 TXB:0 BatTrip:0 PACB-1>TIME-1>UI,?,F0: PHT: uptime is 037/13:39:30. Time is Mon Mar 26 02:21:57 2007
