Might want to consider the one-time cost of a nice directional antenna 
pointed at your radio station on a tower (possibly an already-existing 
one - cell phone or other radio/communications) at a location with 
internet access, versus the yearly cost of other alternatives suggested. 
  If there are no mountains in the way 52.3km is not a long way for a 
radio signal to travel.  The engineer who maintains the station should 
be able to help, or find a local ham radio operator who is knowledgeable 
about antennas and propagation to do the link calculations and determine 
antenna gain requirements for you before investing in such an approach.
