Thanks Matt, will look it up.

I use an LMB clamshell-style box, made of metal. The box itself isn't weatherproof, and I've sealed it up around the edges with Gorilla tape [the water-repellent kind], plus RTV around the BNC exit point. The only caveat with using a metal enclosure is that the BL2 should be mounted 1/2" or more away from any metal except at the BNC end of it.
I brought the balanced signals out through a couple of center insulators. These are available from DX Engineering, last time I looked.

Subject: [Elecraft_K3] BL-2 weather enclosure
I am looking for a weather protector for the balun. On portable uncertain weather, I would rather have some protection. I have seen a plexiglass one, but it has holes and doesn't look like you can switch it easily. Any one found a good solution, like a clamshell enclosure???? Thanks.
