Hmm, sounds not convincin to me. I would favour a local PC, notebook,
tablet or so, running SpecLab and a GPS module. With 60 Ah you can
transmit for just a short time anyway.
The experiment will be portable with a very simple
equipment: a 12V 60Ah lead-acid battery (pretty heavy, but i'm
considering to buy a LiFePO4 battery pack) and a 200W car audio PA with
input connected to a FM RX (QRG in the 70 cm band, no WLAN audio
streaming and stuff).
400 meters away, at
home, I have the FM TX (500 mW or less) modulated by the PC audio. The
feedback for Spectrum Lab will be taken from a little loop (or my main
antenna). Do you think that would work?
Is there no chance to feed a cable from the house to the guide rail, if
the distance is just 400m?
I would not work out a complete system before knowing the guide rails
are working at all. Before buying expensive big wire, i would use a
thin one and determine the ground losses first. Later you can work out
more. The ideas will come with the practice...:-)
At DC? Better use 2 or 3 batteries in series.
permitting, I'll measure the impedance of the ground loop.
Looking forward to first signals.

Ok, Stefan, thanks. I'm ready:
Start at 00:00 UTC (5 Oct)
Duration 6 h, 24 min
...hoping the noise remains low.
