The only problem there is that I could manage to cut myself off as I am at the far end of the link. It would then need a visit to the customer.
Write a small script to turn the power back up after say 5 minutes, then start it and turn down the TX power, if the link breaks , the script will save the day.
The easiest way i've found for boxes outdoors is to put the board into one of these type boxes :

( they come with screws,standoffs etc)
then put that into an ordinary outdoor plastic enclosure.
Run the cables in through glands so the Nconnectors are INSIDE the box ( saves messing with waterproof tape)
If the radio dies , make up a spare at home and go out and swap out the metal box complete. No messing with small screws up on towers
, no danger of breaking pigtails
