OK, you've had all the sensible options, now for the strange one. You
did ask :)
Firstly chop the dc voltage so you have an ac signal. Then amplify it
and feed it to 2 metal rods stuck in the ground spaced a few feet
apart. Doesn't need much power.
Now the receiver is just 2 rods in the ground plus a simple sync
