Making FM contact with RA1SS

OK an Update:
I checked NOVA for tomorrow:

Pass# 40824 
AOS: 0110 (1610 AST local Monday) 
LOS: 0117 (1617 AST) 
is too early for me as I leave work at 1630 AST drive home is 15-min.

Pass# 40825 
AOS: 0243 (1743 AST local Monday) 
LOS: 0252 (1752 AST) 
duration: 8:36 minutes 
highest elevation: 14-degrees

would work well with a long pass if the Astronauts are still awake. 
Perhaps if anyone is talking with the Astronauts earlier in the day could
mention that Alaska will be trying on that pass?
Otherwise, I guess we will have to wait for the orbit to precess into a
more favorable time slot.
