Sure.  If you carry a smartphone or PDA that has a calendar, create a 
calendar event with a reminder a few minutes in advance.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Notification of passes   
I have been very bad at making satellite contacts recently. The main reason 
is because they aren't at a specific time every day/week and I don't look 
for passes very often. When I do search for passes, I am busy during the 
pass or don't have enough time to prep for a pass in 10 minutes. In 
addition, I can only work FM, so there aren't many sats (like one)

Has anybody ever found something to get notified when a pass is coming up 
(maybe in the next few hours or so) via text message or email or something
