I've been using Rubbermaid "Rough Totes" as weather covers for relay switchboxes and my 160M shunt feed caps, U-bolted through the bottom to the rungs of my tower. In the first one of these I did, I just cut a nice big rectangular hole in the side that faces down, for all the coax lines to emerge.
Another inexpensive and very available box is a rural mailbox. They keep mail
pretty dry if the door is closed! ;-) I have built power supplies for prop-pitch
rotators in them for mounting on towers and they work quite well.. Just run everything
in through the bottom. Any humidity drains out the gaps around the bottom.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
