[WildBlue] Azimuth of satellite?

I want to sign up for WildBlue, but have some trees to the southwest that might block my signal. How would I find the bearing for the WB satellite, based on my lat/lon?

I have a clear view to the south and southeast. The trees are on an abutting landowner, and can't come down.

Thanks.

Plenty of pointing angle calculators all over the internet, some even downloadable as utilities. Assuming you know your own lat/lon with a reasonable degree of accuracy, the Exede satellite is positioned over longitude 115.1 degrees West.
