David the one I got the previous owner just put RVT all over it, except the RCA jack. I need to redo it, but it's raining, hi. The 435 yagi came with an aluminum box enclosure....wonder why they didnt do the vhf yagi the same ?? Course we'll never know as they are out of business.

Anyone out there with KLM antennas with the polarity switch care to comment 
on whether you have put a housing on the switch to protect it from the 
elements? It looks like the relay has silicon around the base but it just 
grates me the wrong way to have a circuit board with a power connection and 
components exposed to the elements. 

Maybe it has not been an issue but I'd care to hear of anyone experiences. 
If anyone has built up a housing and have pictures or directions, please 
pass them along
