Radon system - modification

I have a mitigation system in my home that vents up an abandon chimminy. I am re-roofing and plan to remove the chimminy.
I would like to move the "Radon Away" vacuum pump from the basement to an outside wall of the house.
Once I get the piping modified to extend outside the basement and just above the ground I need to know how high up the side of the house does it need to go and what do you do at the end of the pipe to keep birds and such out of the pipe?

Does the pipe need to go out past the end of the soffit or can it just end a foot or so below the soffit and close to the side wall?
