    Great performance, would love to see speed test results at 6-7-8pm to see what the congestion is like.

    Only other thing i would consider is maybe putting a shelter over the box, aka a bit of aluminium or tin as a second roof which will reduce temps since it will keep the box shaded for most of the day (similar to what they do with chicken coops and sheds etc)

    you will need to replace the network cable with something outdoor rated as that cable will be brittle in months!

    It does seem like they use an odd connector - not RP-SMA, maybe MS-156, but without good photos it's hard to tell. They also delete posts from their boards containing specific details. Pricks.

    Wrapping it in corrugated conduit would be better

    UV will still break that down dont underestimate what UV can do, spend the cost on outdoor rated cat6 and you'll be fine

    It's commercial rubber waterproofing designed for rooftops etc. It's uv rated. It'll be fine

    Thats what i would do, split corrugated conduit is cheap as chips and will offer decent protection
