If you don't have a front F key, you can just play high A and add the palm F key which is all the front F does anyway. Some confusion about the front F is that for high F# you need to use the first finger (LH) to depress the front F and also the second finger needs to press the A key. The RH can operate the side Bb. I find that for the high G and above it helps to add the low C and Bell Bb keys. G is the front F key alone and the RH first finger F key. In other words high G is like high Bb but the first finger LH jumps up to the front F.
Now if you have a horn that only goes up to Eb, there is a whole list of options. If you have a soprano to high Eb and the Eb palm key also depresses the D palm let me know as I have a fix.
