Hi Bob, W7LRD
Your switching box is the KLM model CS2 suitable for 70 cm crossed yagi model 435-18CX or 435-40CX and it is enclosed into a completely sealed aluminum box so that a weep hole in the bottom is recommended to prevent umidity condensation inside of it.
I have removed the above CS2 switching box for only RHCP and LHCP on my 435-40CX crossed yagi and I have designed and built e four polarizations switcher for V-H-RHCP and LHCP as described by my articles into the AMSAT Journal March/April 2007 and May/June 2007
If you cannot get the above AMSAT-Journals please let me know and I will send to you a copy via Stan W1LI because your provider @comcast.net rejects all emails coming from my provider @tin.it

Thanks for your pictures. Attached are some pictures of my switch box. I am not sure what the brand of this antenna is. It has been recommended that I have a weep hole in the bottom. What do you think? There is sealing material called 3M5200 a marine sealant, very nasty but almost permanent and very wx resistant.
