Exterior enclosure--probable solution

Thanks to Phil (PRE) for the outstanding enclosure.  It will easily accommodate 4 Balkans (baluns--what does spell check know!) and their corresponding polygamists (polyphasers--I mean really spell check--take a break).  The door has a rubber seal bolts tightly shut. The box is made from 1/8" material and will easily resist mountain weather and critters.  Welded pre-drilled mounting tabs will allow easy attachment to a steel or wooden post, or even bolting to the rock retaining wall.

Most importantly, Jack solved the balanced line routing problem recommending porcelain feedthrough standoff insulators--a pair of course for each balanced line coming into the enclosure.  The depth of the enclosure will easily accommodate two such feedthrough insulators side by side.

Not yet even close to prime time.  Only in design phase....which it may not survive!
If you could put anything on the control GUI what would you add?
