Something else to consider, while generally height is a good thing as it gets you above the local "ground clutter". But too much height can create problems too. Depending on the design of the building, you might end up with the signal having to go though the exterior wall and the roof to reach adjoining rooms. Not to mention that more height is more distance. It may result in a weaker signal then if it was mounted lower and only had to deal with interior walls.

Completely agree. In a church building it would just about be the best option to stay away from basket balls + youth trying to peg the units. A combination nobody wants to have to deal with. There are also cages that aren't metal that shouldn't interfere with the signal, but even then, upon sleeping on the idea, it isn't a good idea. The ceiling would be a little high and the signal strength would be weak.
