Default VHF/Hailer/Fog Horn Suggestions

I've been trying to decide where to mount the hailer. I had wanted to
mount it just above by foredeck light, but after looking at the dimensions,
I don't want to have my tape-drive jib swinging past a 9"+ protrusion on a
regular basis, even if there is a guard.

So, I was thinking of mounting the hailer just above the jib box. I have a
7/8 rig. A person who used to commission Freedoms commented that he was
afriad that this was too high. I would have thought that the higher, the
better as the sound would carry further. Any thoughts?
