Mast Mounted Weather Proof Splitter in Canada

Hello Guys,

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, I have no idea where to post my question.

I need a mast mounted two way power passing splitter where the connections are all on one side, and in a protective sealed enclosure like this one:

I would like to buy this in Canada if possible (anywhere near Toronto would be great)

It must be installed outdoors which is why I want a sealed box.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Almost any decent splitter may be used outdoors without such an enclosure as long as you use weather-resistant cable connections. A properly installed compression fitting, for example, should last many years.

It could be useful to use such a weather resistant box for other things that don't deal with
the weather so well. Like external filters, etc.

Solid Signal sells a box, but no combiner, for $6.99, but doesn't look like it's meant to be mounted on a mast.

A weatherproof electrical box with watertight connectors is not cheap but very versatile for mounting components on a mast. A way to attach it could probably be found at a hardware store.. I believe Channel Master had an outdoor combiner splitter for $35. It wasn't water tight either. A real rip-off.

I agree with @ADTech ; most splitters/combiners are already sealed against moisture. I use Belden Snap n' Seal F connectors, and have never had issues with moisture ingress. Condensation more easily evaporates off components exposed to open air.

On the exterior wall where the antenna coax enters the house and my arrestor is installed, I do have a box for aesthetic reasons only.
