You're quite right, I didn't see that RF-5 was coming from the west, not north. That certainly makes it a bit more challenging. For that reason, I think my first try would be a HD7000R aimed northwest. Signals are strong enough and the pattern is broad enough I think it has a good chance of succeeding.
