Nope doesn´t matter. You can put them pretty mucy any where you want as long as you have a relatively good view of the horizon and overhead. Do they have the spoked reflector rods below the loops? If so then the performance may be slightly better overhead on the passes. Good results may come of this, actually you may need to use the preamps on some passes. Try first on VO-52 and AO-7 to see if yo can hear the beacons, if so then there shouldn´t be a problem.
