Closer to the antenna is best.
Mounting the preamp closer to the antenna cuts down on the signal loss, but I viewed the ~1.5dB of loss over 50-feet of down-tree coax as an equitable trade for easier access to the pre-amp. I suggest getting a Kitztech rather than trying another RCA or CM. They are more expensive, but you "gain" 2-3 dB due to the lower noise figure.

Thanks! That was my thinking as well.
