there is a cheap and easy solution. Go to www.amsat-dl.org/vertrieb
and select 'English page' from the left. As first item of software
you'll find AOS.exe 2.5. With this free program which runs under DOS
you can create what you are looking for.
Here is a sample of a saved listing:

AOS V.2.5          T#: 8679       NASA.ELE                  QTH :   9.7 / 52.4
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Day         Obj.          AOS (L) LOS  Duration maxEl  Az(AOS)  Satel.:  1
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 06-10-2001   AO-40         13:23   02:06    763     36     202


AOS V.2.5          T#: 8680       NASA.ELE                  QTH :   9.7 / 52.4
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Day         Obj.          AOS (L) LOS  Duration maxEl  Az(AOS)  Satel.:  1
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 07-10-2001   AO-40         12:55   02:46    831     34      92


AOS V.2.5          T#: 8681       NASA.ELE                  QTH :   9.7 / 52.4
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Day         Obj.          AOS (L) LOS  Duration maxEl  Az(AOS)  Satel.:  1
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 08-10-2001   AO-40         14:39   21:36    417     21      95

I'm sure you will enjoy that program! If you have any further question
I will be glad to answer.
