So worth it, if Mr. Faraday's roll-off cage will keep lightning from smokin' my Paramount and pooter!

It's about 70 feet down the hill from my house. Gonna try a 4G hot spot first. If that doesn't work, then I can mount a pair of wireless antennas. Hate to dig another trench for CAT-5.

Digging a 70' trench is pretty easy. You can rent a ditch witch (portable) walk behind model and be done with it in a day. Throw a line in another trench. You can do a couple of lines in case one fails too.
