Hi guys.
Are there any other satellites other than NOAA, METEOR and ORBOCOMM on 137MHz which i can decode?

Not really, you might try looking slightly higher up to ~145 MHz for the ISS and amateur radio satellites, and if you're in the right region, up to ~243 Mhz for the milsatcom band and pirates.

The Fox Satellites (in particular, AO-91 and AO-92) are pretty easy to hear with a decent omni antenna. The latest version of FoxTelem will accomodate an RTL-SDR.com V3 dongle, but I have seen very little success with it (originally it only supported the FunCube Dongle or piped in audio).
