the original poster indicated the FM station was on an American Indian 
reservation in a very remote canyon, and the ONLY phone lines available 
were 2 pairs of LONG haul copper POTS lines, one currently used by the 
stations telephone service, the other available for modem use.   They 
are using a microwave link to get from the station to the hilltop 
transmitter, but that the nearest 'real' town with a telephone CO that 
would support any sort of real internet service is way too far away for 
FM reception, even with a directional yagi.
