Remote backup worked with 2 day long ssh sessions.
Thanks for the comment...

While researching for this I recall a few articles that mentioned this issue. One, which I would have to search for again, suggested a persistent SSH utility that monitors the state of an SSH connection and re-establishes it if it fails.

I was also contemplating RSYNC as a useful tool for low bandwidth connections. One could run a media server at the antenna/tuner location and then upload recorded programs to the remote site for delayed viewing.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
