Here is another approach which is reasonably inexpensive and from seeing it in operation I know it works. Get a Kenwood TS 480SAT (very good radio for the money by the way). It has a separate control head. Buy "Remotorig" ( a product from Europe sold here by HRO). The radio itself (but not the control head) goes on the mountain plugged into the remotorig and in turn to an internet line via Ethernet cable(no computer needed). The second remotorig (they come in pairs) goes where ever you want to operate and you plug the control head into it and the remotorig to an internet line with an Ethernet cbale. You are on the air and have the actual radio control head in fromt of you. The remotorig boxes work with any transceiver having a separate control head but is ready made for the TS 480. Not counting whatever infrastructure you need at your Oregon mountaintop the radio and remotorig will set you back less than $1,500 total.
There are sheep. There are wolves who prey on the sheep. There are sheepdogs who protect the sheep from the wolves. God protect those of us who are sheepdogs.
