Although this suggestion presents some theoretical problems, mounting an antenna on the push pit has many practical advantages over a masthead mount .
I agree.

When I got AIS I wanted it on its own antenna so I added one to the pushpit. The VHF is now on the rail and the AIS is on the mast head.
The range I get from the pushpit is fine. I have not noticed anyone having any difficulty with receiving me... And I use the damn thing every day.

So if its a matter or doing things economically then go the aft rail.
