Data cable shielding question with installation away from house.

Living in a heavily wooded area I need to install Starlink on a 30' tower about 125' away from my home. I will run separate power and data to the tower, locating the included router + ethernet adapter in a weatherproof box at the tower base. I've read that if using cat cable it needs t/b shielded if run along side the power due to interference, or run them at least 12" apart.I could use fiber which is not subject to interference, but that would cost at least another $200 in materials. I have plenty of cat6 cable but it's not shielded. I'd like to dig only 1 narrow trench, since I'll likely be doing it by hand.This may sound naive, but could I shield my data cable with aluminum foil? I could buy shielding for the cat6 but that would also cost a couple hundred. Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated.Bruce
