Hi Gary,

There are many ways to achieve the goal.  I used 
ICE protectors for my system, and the waterproof 
housing I purchased from an electrical supply 
company - it's fiberglass and works well.  You can check out how I did it at:


Click on Ham Radio in the Menu, and then choose Lightning Protection.

I hope this gives you some ideas on how to proceed.
