Not many tips, but I feel your pain. I called one last weekend with about 3 feet on each endline. One end had the stage the other the entrance.

I found that if I moved toward the sideline (away from the lane) and almost straddled the endline, I had a better view. My partner (who I call a lot of 3-whistle with) kept mentioning that it seemed odd and he felt out of sync the whole time. I didn't feel the same way, but once you get off balance, it can be difficult to get back to normal.
