    there is a publicly available one roger,
    on the aerospace corporation website at http://www.aero.org/ .
    However its not upto date.
    The Space-track.org has a predicted decay list but you have to ask to join
    and they put strong restrictions on you.
    They have a small us satellite currently in a 20 orbit window.
