Thnx Kenneth-  

 I'll post my prediction chart again here for S.Central AK--- 

Here is what I see for BP51 passes-
(Six more  passes at +1 elev or more)

For AOS+ max elevation (bp51cf) I show:
monday +3 max elev    aos:   0710AK 
tues         +5                              0117AK
tues        +12                            0250AK
tues        +13                             0425AK
tues         +6                              0600AK
wed         +1                              0009AK
wed         +9                              0141AK
Initial xsmsn ending Wednesday at 0230 AK local.
So maybe a shot for the guys that want to try at 0250 or 0425 AK local 
tomorrow.. at max elev-ISS in southern sky.
  Will see what we can get...   Eric  n6spp
(ps- any help is great.. + I have the arrisat2 links+ a few programs+iphone apps

ARISSat-1 should be active until April 13 at 10:30 UTC. You get a shot at it on 
April 12.

Eric, N6SPP/KL7 no reception of ARISSat at 1512utc  Next time ISS is 
visible will be 9:15utc Apr. 12  5-deg max elevation.  ARISSat will 
be turned off before the pass at 10:50utc.  Very little chance to 
observe from Alaska.
