It is amazingly silent and given it's headless Ethernet remote-able nature could be placed under the table or behind a panel or even in a dog house out by the tower along with a 6700.  Instead of a feedline just run a piece of CAT6 out to the radio saving a couple dB of cable loss.

If I was to do any remoting like that I'd use fiber Ethernet to reduce risks of RFI issues, and gain some degree of lightning protection for the Ethernet network connection. A $100 or less will get you the media converters from CAT 6 to fiber and back, or SFP equipped switche(s) on one end or both will also work and are really quite reasonable cost wise. And the cost for a length of outdoor rated fiber to cover the distance is about a wash with the cost of outdoor rated CAT 6 over a comparable distance. And as a plus fiber can be run for much longer distances than copper if you want to. You'd certainly want to pull the fiber through a conduit though for protection from critters etc., and also want make sure it doesn't have a metallic sheath (which would negate the lightning immunity benefits of fiber).
