:-)  I remember seeing a mailbox like that on Topanga Canyon Blvd, just
before the turn off for W6DGH/N6AA.

Well, I was looking for some kind of WX proof enclosure to put preamps
and antenna relays in.  That turned out to be the most cost effective 
solution I could find at the hardware store.  It is the kind of mailbox
that opens from both ends - so that would make it easier to work with...

Had I not mounted the u-bolts such that one of the doors is bolted 

I used a chassis punch (like the one we used to use for octal sockets)
to make holes in the bottom to run the coax through.
