I came across this website in an Email from the National Space 
Society. If you haven't tried it yet, give it a shot.

Earth Satellite Ephemeris Service:
http://www.chara.gsu.edu/sat.html

The service provides a list - similar to Quicksat - of visible 
satellites over your location (you have to input your lat/long/elev). 
I asked for a list of "bright" satellites and got a list considerably 
longer than the Quicksat output for the same night with the minimum 
magnitude set to 4.0 in quicksat.ctl and the "visible.tle" set from 
TS Kelso's website. There is no indication of how 
old the tle's used are, or which satellites are included in the 
calculations. However, the service was easy to use, well-prepared and 
fast.
