help! Apogee formula needed!

Do you have to actually calculate them from the elements?
If not, it probably would be faster to get the SATELLITE SITUATION REPORT
and just take the figures from there.

The first shuttle I saw was also at 8 deg elev.  I think I've seen them a
little lower but I don't have any figures in front of me now.
I'm at lat 40.2833.
