Quote:I can see myself driving the 30m up there and being too cold to get anything done. It will mostly be for switching OTA's or cameras or just general troubleshooting.

Set your goal to be able to control the equipment from your home. Design the building and choose the equipment with that goal in mind. Hard to beat the luxury of observing from your living room with the click of a mouse.
