Take a look at http://www.ne.jp/asahi/hamradio/je9pel/satslist.htm or http://www.dk3wn.info/satellites.shtml as alternatives (both linked from http://www.amsat.org/?page_id=179).
The old AMSAT page you mentioned was a complete PITA to maintain, especially at 10-20 satellites a launch, and decaying orbits and dying cubes and such.
If you or anyone else want to build a table or spreadsheet that we can host on the new page, I'll post it, but I will need long-term help to maintain it. I took over the maintenance of the old sat status pages before my current job, and more importantly, my two harmonics.
