For what that guy will spend in that, that is just crazy. But still a
good idea non the less. Here's the solution...
Two - Way Satellite Up and Down. There will be at least a half a second
delay. The OP will be able to stream the FM signal to the Web his self
with his own server. He can take a direct AFoutput to a sound card
input into the server from the FM transmitter. If the OP runs the
station he will know what an AF output is and will need an attenuator
between the two. There are a many Linux Apps that can pickup an
AFaudio output into a sound card.
The only drawback to this is the Sat Connection cost fee per month.
Being this is on a "indian reservation" I would seriously look into
government grants for this if I were the Project Manager (technology
grants). The only company I really know is Motorola that can provide a
hardware solution for this type of solution.
