Canopy 900Mhz 1900ft w/ 1100ft in trees? Will it work?


I am trying to get advice on making a wireless link to get internet access to a rural home that has no broadband option available and satellite is too high latency for what is needed.

I have found the Motorola canopy 900 Mhz system and it sounds like it will be close but I am not sure. I GREATLY prefer to use the AP and SM with the integrated antenna, but if this installation will be pushing it, then the connectorized AP and Subscriber module may be required.

You can see the link in google maps or google earth.

Access Point will be at 35°44'32.94"N , 80°37'1.35"W

Subscriber will be at 35°44'20.30"N , 80°36'42.71"W

or a distance of 1980 ft with trees at both ends and open field in the middle. Both homes are higher elevation than anything in between. Specifically there are 1000' of trees close to the subscriber end and around 100' of trees close to the Access point side, again with open field at lower elevation in the middle.

I will be able to go up about 20-25ft high on the subscriber end, but access point side will most like be inside the house or mounted to the eaves

Am I going to disappointed with an empty wallet?
