Enclosures for electronics left in the open environment need to be weather-tight, waterproof, provide UV protection and provide some level of physical protection.
An RBOG (Reversible Beverage On Ground) antenna has a transformer at the far end of each leg of the array that needs protection.
A lot of hams improvise and I was eyeing some of the planter pots, which I though I could use inverted.
Then while I was out in the gardening shed looking for a pair for suitable flower pots, a deer went by, and then a woodchuck.
Pondering I thought my flower pot resting on wooden stand idea was likely to be upturned by the wildlife, and most likely would not be waterproof all year around.
So I started looking at commercial options and settled on the SOCKiTBOX DriBOX 200 as the solution I would try.
SOCKiTBOX DriBOX 200 is the smallest of the offerings, and I truly hope the actual green is not quite as bright.
At the end transformer end of an RBOG there are two wires to bring into the SOCKiTBOX DriBOX 200, the antenna wire pair itself and a ground wire. I will build-up the wires if they are too small for the gasketing to seal up. [EDIT – looks like the gaskets will work without extra assistance. And yes they are a less subdued than hoped for.]

They even have a video: https://youtu.be/QWk-nWV-JiM
I paid $15.99 each (plus tax) from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009RX5H6S
