Rocket M5's are the toughest stuff they make (that I've used).  With the 30
dbi dish and radome cover they're great but that's a bit much for 10 miles.
 I think you could do that shot using Nanobridges with the 25dbi (18 inch)
dish.  I have a 20 mile shot using those with no problems.  For $95 us
dollars each they're a steal.  Make sure you use shielded cable with the
RJ45's that ground the shield at either end.  Also watch the 5.6 band
(though i'm not sure what your amateur band plan might include).  They use
it for radar here and an ISP in Utah got a hefty fine for operating on that
