(... Talked over this in IRC ...)

Seems the easiest way will be to set up an encoding server in the
tower and one in our base area, and just use wireless links.

Technically yes, but strictly, we were talking about the plateau area.

Yup... But I've seen some press-related movement. I don't think we will
suffer overflow, but we might.

Besides, if it's not hard to do this, it will be a very desirable
option for people with limited movility.
