    Does anyone have info on proper weatherproofing of Alcatel Lucent 9442 RRH2x40 radio heads?
    We have crews installing these RRHs, and they are either leaving them open, or just using the plastic dust cap that comes with the RRH. This can't be right, having DC connectors open to moisture?
    One of our CMs thinks we should be using NEMA-4 cable glands, but those aren't on the BOMs, and I'd have to find out what size would work.
    Does anyone have a satisfactory method of weatherproofing these connectors?

    Nevermind, got it sorted out. Using 1 1/4" to 3/4" reducing washers, then a standard NEMA cable gland in that.
