No not a castle (yet 8-) ) surounded by good old SG reinforced concrete I am going to bounce a signal right over the pool area 17 floors below. :lol:

Good man, I like your thinking. In case of emergency you can always try v-post and buy on amazon.com and then get it shipped through the US. Worked well for me. As mentioned it is only a last resort though as it is a bit pricey.
