Forgot to mention having the need to properly ground the cable.If going to that much trouble, I would put a Cat5 to fiber optic media converter on each end, and run 60m of duplex fiber optic cable between them. Cost would be about $400 for the media converters and cable, but lightening and surge suppression would no longer be an issue.
