The low elevation for (G28 at 26.5 deg) is difficult from here in the Seattle area as well due to trees and mountain ridges. But I’m more concerned about EIRP values. They are important to get an adequate link budget.

ES9/G23 from Seattle – 42
G28 from Seattle – 41-50
As you can see, even though G28 is 10 degrees lower to the horizon, it’s a better signal for me in the Seattle area, assuming of course that I have a good line of sight.
I can’t get Lyngsat to cooperate in order to give me the EIRP values for Michigan and Boston. I’m at the west end of i-90, you are somewhere in the middle and Boston is on the east end.
Everything further south is of course better.
