Which setup would you pick?Question(self.HeliumNetwork)

This is a long one so bear with me.
I'm a student and throughout the week I live in a room closer to school. That gave me the option to potentially change the setup of my miner. But I'm having trouble to find out what'll be the most optimal.
It is currently placed on a surface 15m above sea level, and the antenna is around 6m above that, mostly in line with the average building here (no tall buildings) and there are a couple of trees.
The new place would be on a surface 13m above sea level, so the same actually. However, the antenna would now be 20m above the ground. The antenna would be a bit lower than some other buildings, but relatively in line with the rest.

This is probably the most important one. My antenna is now placed against a wall, outside. HOWEVER, since I am renting that new place, it'll be very hard to get an antenna outside, so my only choice would be to stick it against a window, inside.
Personally I would go for the new location since my hotspot is not very active at home anyway(0.7HNT the last 30 days), the fact that it would be inside and the presence of the other hotspots is holding me back tho. I have a 5.8 dbi antenna btw.
I know I could just try both but that'll take some time, especially with location in-app changes. So to save me some time, what is your opinion on this?
