I am putting up a tower at the top of my hill, about 600 feet
from the hamshack.  I do not yet have a rotor, but I wondered if
others who have faced a distance like this have any
tried-and-true tricks for powering the rotor at this distance. 
There is no electric power near the tower.  
Does anyone have a recommendation on wire type, power conversion,
etc.? Cost is an object, but I would like to know what has worked
in the past.
