Re: Fiber



An alternative model is to put your rig at your antenna and control the
rig remotely, (e.g., like putting your mobile rig in the trunk).  You
would pass audio and control signals over the fiber, (rather than
RF).

Of course, a cheap source of fiber equipment would be fiber Ethernet
transceivers.  While you are at it, you may as well use IP, probably
including voice over IP.  Once you have IP, you need to be only within
12,500 miles of your rig.  Of course, security might be a bit of
an issue, if you attached all of this to the Internet...
