I'll be happy to put one up if I can come up with an antenna. Is ISS
the only thing still worth listening for? If I wanted to get fancy I
could probably have PREDICT calculate what's coming up next and switch

I told my students to watch the map and the packets from the APRS-IS (internet System) on www.ariss.net as the ISS came in view of CA, OR and WA.
