Thanks for the feedback on my Satellite question.  Clearly that isn’t the way to go.  We found yesterday that we can (with binoculars) see our campus FM radio station tower from the remote site.  Has anyone ever “shared” a tower with low power FM and a wireless data setup, or would one negatively impact the other?  The distance is about 2.5 miles (4.1km).

I would use Microwave. God bless, Sam Young CIO Point Loma Nazarene University. Sent from my iPad
Hi Charlie, Microwave backhaul can go up to 75 miles. The maximum bandwidth you can transmit is 10Gbps. I think that would be adequate for you. God bless, Sam Young CIO Point Loma Nazarene University Sent from my iPad
I agree with Dale's assessment.  A couple miles with line of sight is an easy link to engineer and install.
Interference issues won't be with FM, rather with any other microwave (and potentially WiFi).
