Use wi-fi to send digitized audio to the tower base for input to the auto-tuning amplifier. Rotor control also. Supply AC power only and eliminate coax loss, lightning threat.
Of course defending the rig and wireless unit from lightning, and providing a remote power source, are challenges. Am looking at a big solar charged deep cycle battery for power.
May I recommend http://www.homepower.com/ as an information resource for the latter... lots of useful information there (and the magazine has lots of ads for suppliers of this sort of thing: solar panels, charge controllers, batteries, etc.)
http://www.windsun.com/ (Northern Arizona Wind & Sun) is a useful mail order site with lots of information.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
