I have an Ameritron RCS-8V I'd like to mount, along with lightning arrestors, inside a weatherproof box that will go on the exterior wall of my house (I don't have a tower, but do have a number of wire antennas).
1. Can I mount the RCS-8V with the relays facing out and not down, as one would if it was mounted on a tower or mast?
2. Can I use CAT5 cable for the control line? It is 4 pairs of small gauge cable, and the switch wants 5 conductors.
