BTW you could do this perfectly legally without using ham radio.. put 
24dBi antennas at both ends, and 10 miles is no problem with standard 
off the shelf 802.11 gear.  that 40-50 dB extra gain is like running 
kilowatts instead of the stock 100mW (or, another way, it gives you 
100-300 times the range of the stock box)
