Do you have any electrical code issues? (like, do you have to meet 
code?)  If you do, that will substantially affect the alternatives.  For 
instance, you normally can't run 120V power and low voltage signals (i.e. 
rotator,coax) in the same conduit.

I think the moisture issues can be dealt with (it's not like other people 
in rainy climates don't run conduit undergrond)
