Where are the New Satellites in the Sky?

Woindering whether to upgrade.

I currently have DirecTV HDTV, using the 3-LNB oval dish. I'm getting a 95-100 signal strength most of the time on all three LNB's.

However, I'm pretty sure the signal is just skirting by some treetops.

If I go for the new, larger 5-LNB dish, I'm wondering whether I'll pick up the two newer satellites...or whether I should just leave well enough alone and stick with my current dish.

So in layman's terms, are the new satellites close to the three I already get? Or, can anyone tell me if they're situated farther East or West, or whether they're significantly higher or lower in the sky?

I'm in Maryland, 20817, if that helps.

I really appreciate it.
