Superbird A (#20040)  is a good choice and only needs binoculars
during the bright period.  Maybe Rob Matson will post a current
set of times for that.

You might also try the DBS (#22930, 23192 and 23598) satellites 
and others in that area such as ACTS (#22796). 

Also try looking at GEOs before they are eclipsed.

I can send you a JPG to find the GEOs before eclipse if you are
interested.
