[amsat-bb] Re: Outdoor box for preamp?

I would suggest that you look around for a store which _specializes_ in
supplying builders.  They are usually primarily wholesale, but do retail as
well.  We have one up the road a few miles.  They have a huge selection of
similar boxes.  Some are small enough to mount a relay in, and one is big
enough to remotely mount a transverter.  One of those places you seldom
need, but they can solve a lot of odd problems.

Thanks Drew,
 I was going by there tomorrow to look around anyway and now I know 
better what I'm looking for. The online site says my local store has it 
so hopefully I'll be in business soon.
