To find out when one of the FAST satellites will be in range of your station, simply send an APRS message to FAST1 or FAST2. The message content can be anything and you must have recently transmitted a position for your station. You will receive a response describing the next expected pass of the respective satellite.

PS. You can send a message to ISS or any of the other popular amateur radio satellites to receive the next pass information for that satellite at your most recently transmitted coordinates.
PPS. If the body of the message is an active APRS station (callsign-SSID), then the pass prediction will be based on that station's most recent position instead of your own.
