My first advice is ditch the amp, not necessary and most likely illegal power. You can get what you need out of the minipci card. You will want to purchase from US distributor, search for RB411 and you should have plenty of options, best one probably close to you so you get them quickly

Do the link budgets including cable loss. XR cards are 600mW cards, so more output than the amps originally proposed. I have XR cards on the ground, 150' of LMR600 to antennae at the top and the links all work as predicted. I just can't see putting any kind of amp at the top when you can do it

Jeremy, Since you mention StarOS, I have to ask: why not just use the Lucaya gear? If you skip the amps, the X2000 would let your climber take up a replacement radio and change two RF cables and one ethernet cable. (for two radios) Just curious why you seem to reject the StarOS
