DEM converter mounting

How are people who have bought the DEM converter mounting it?  The photo
DEM has on their web site shows a plain box and their text indicates
that their housing decisions took into account  mounting their helical
antenna on the box to make a single package.  Basically I'm concerned
about maintaing the weatherproof integrity of the box and keeping
mounting hardware away from the circuitry.

Also, are people mounting their various converters on the crossboom or
on the vertical mast?  The obvious problem with putting it on the
crossboom is that the connectors will be more exposed to weather, except
when the antennas are vertical.  Anybody using some kind of gimbal mount
so that the connectors can always be on the bottom of the box?
