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!
