You can try to do the same thing that a radio group in Norway did to get 
Echolink on a repeater site. They contacted a local WISP prowider and 
connected a cable to their switch in the tower. It worked whery well. 
This way you can remote controll the computer up there via Internet.

I thought about the dstar but it isn't in the budget. I heard their radios are crappy also. Just a matter of time before I will be able to run some tests.

>>> It will be on a remote mountain-top for good coverage. Being computer controlled, I need a link to upload new menu options, Newsline and more. At least 50 to 100 Kbps. I have been messing around with a couple old wrt54g's hacked out with DD-WRT. I love them with the new firmware! I have not, however gotten around to trying to shoot the 7 mile path between the mountain and me. I have most of the necessary equipment including dishes. Just a matter of time.
