Hi



5 miles? Yeah some people did it as special graduate project.

You would have to install Towers at the both ends. Depending on the terrain
the Towers might be 30'-50' high. You would have to put an Access Point with
Highly Directional Antenna at the top, and make sure that the hardware can
stand Physically and Electronically the Weather.

You would need survey tool and good maps so you can point the Antennae
facing precisely one the other.

It is a lot of learning and a lot of work.
