[amsat-bb] Pass prediction algorithm

I'm trying to write my own pass prediction program for tracking FM 
satellites.  This program will this notify the users of upcoming passes 
via APRS messaging.  I would like to find an algorithm that will predict 
AOS/LOS time and azimuth and the  maximum elevation.  I'm also hoping 
this algorithm will not be too computationally intensive as it may 
possibly be used for hundreds of different station locations.

Can anyone help?
