I could also test it and then hand it on to a nearby deployment if that
would help.

Six.  I'm a developer and tester, not a deployment or pilot.

Australia, on a remote property, near the village of Tooraweenah,
population 76.

AC certainly.  DC possible.  Have a solar panel, plan to get more.

Not at all.

None needed.  However I would be willing to test a unit if you need
tests done.
