A good site to check for ISS passes without downloading and installing  
software is heavens-above.com.

Click the appropriate link under 'Configuration' to set your location  
(choices are 'select from map', or from 'database' or 'edit manually')

Once your location is set, click 'Radio amateur satellites'. Then look  
for 'ISS' to see the times you could hear it over your location. If  
it's above your horizon at approx 15:50 this Saturday, you should be  
able to hear Don Shamino's part of  the conversation.

If you want a free tracking program, check out Orbitron at stoff.pl.

If you want a not-free tracking program with more features, try Nova  
for Window at nlsa.com.

Good luck!
