A friend moved from our area to a cabin in a canyon near Rapid City,
SD and had to do this.  The cable internet provider in the area was
pretty much useless.  She was able to get permission to put the
router/antenna from someone who lives on the canyon's edge.  She had
to do this to keep her (techie) job.
