@61 ham radio would be able to work over long distance and is long time approved to work. ip router based on ham radio would be a cool base for an emergency network

Good luck, it's a fascinating field! 👍
It is captivating stuff though. Not an amateur myself although I do have a professional R/T licence as a commercial pilot.
Nowadays it's mostly internet wherever you are in the world, thanks to VSAT and Thuraya/Iridium/Inmarsat, but I have fond memories of working an SSB radio back in the day as your only means of communication with the world while stationed in hot & sandy places.
