    Just the first one I came across on a quick search. Looks like you will need a phone jack in the garage...easy enough with a Radio Shack or other telephone cord connection kit. Also, it would be a good idea to place your phone disconnect inside either the garage or house as well.

    Actually, when I was looking I noticed it was going for another $10-$15 less in the ad I didn't click on.

    Sorry Davedarragh

    Bad of me not to be specific. The ones that I have used came from the scrap steel bin with permission of course. I have a buddy that used one of the traffic signal boxes and if memory serves me correct it came from the DOT lot where they store supplies. He stopped by and ask someone in the yard if that large pile was good stuff or scrap. The guy that he talked to even helped him load it up and he was on his way. I'm sure not everyone has luck like that but everyone has friends that have friends and word of mouth is the best way to find something.

    BTW sorry to stray off topic but just wanted to clarify the fact that I wasnt suggesting something that could not possibly be found and used.

    Thanks , I searched for an hour for such a device.I know something like this can also be used for a wireless phone. A customer of mine has automated ice houses set around town that you can buy bag or bulk ice from.If a malfunction arises a cell phone that is attached to a computer inside will call his phone to report the problem and depending on what the problem is he may be able to correct the problem over the phone.

    Tom37: Maybe it was just the way I read it. I'm sure they make great storage boxes, was a little unclear as to the public availability. (or if a City Official was to spot one at one's home).
