Simple, do a ULS search for radars in the area and don't disable DFS.

 I will also throw in my vote to stick with 5ghz using Ubquiti
NanoStations to bridge from house to hill. If you can park it above
5.825 ghz and below 5.850 ghz you'll have no radar worries because
your still in the unlicensed and Part 97 area but most wifi cards stop
at 5825.
3300 to 3500 would give you similar results but 3300-3400 also has
radar issues...
Ubiquiti radios have a spectrum analyzer mode that is great for
finding garbage where you plan to park your link....
