Maybe practical if the hops are short enough.    Such a system was feasible for a 950 Mhz STL link for a station I used to work at.   Two back to back passive dishes mounted on a hilltop that was in the way.   No AC power needed.   Marti calculated this to be do-able.

Just thinking outside the box, here... what about a 100% PASSIVE relay system? :)

I assume that the site with the clear view of the ISP is such that you could easily mount a good dish pointing at the provider, and another good dish pointed at your site? Between the two, nothing more than a short piece of coax or waveguide. No power needed! :)

If the dishes have good enough gain, then it should be enough to allow a dish at your site to establish the link with theirs.

I know some of you have faced similar issues getting Internet and/or STL to geographically challenged transmitter sites. And, many of you know how to work with limited budgets. I look forward to hearing about your innovative solutions to this problem.

Thank you, my friends,
