I was just thinking about this topic myself. I was looking at the electrical boxes at Home Depot suitable for outdoors. They come in all assorted sizes with threaded holes for conduit fittings. Everything could be nicely labeled inside.

I found a few places on the internet and ebay. They are like what the cable co's use and run under $20 shipped. I have a couple that I bought a few years ago and love them. I did not find any on Sadoun's site, so I might have to buy from another source :(

I thought about that....but.... I am shy and anti social! Heck, there is still a Primestar dish about 2 blocks from my house that I have still not inquired about - I spotted it over 2 years ago :(

This is how I get my supply of PPC-EX6 F fittings :)

The logic is flawless... Cable companies usually spring for the best gear in order to cut down on service calls, therefore they carry the good stuff.

I am just a "firebuff" - my father is a retired firefighter and I have always like firefighting equipment, vehciles, etc. :)

any home improvement store has them (Home Depot, Lowes, Menards) and as noted in various sizes

(I'm the same way...very shy around people) :)

honestly its true. I don't like big groups of people and can be very quiet most of the time. I can be chatty if someone is at my house but big groups I dont like
