Teko Shielded RF Enclosures

Surprisingly enough, it's tough to find shielded RF enclosures at low costs that you can solder to.  My suspicion is that these are typically purpose built for whatever product they go into.

I found one company that offers such enclosures (eg RF Boxes), with shielded sub compartments: Teko

In my 6/10m SSB/CW transceiver project i used three of these RF boxes for VHF bandpass and low pass filters.  The boxes i used were Teko Part numbers 372.16 and the 373.16.

Teko will also sample boxes for your application.  I'm a big fan and just wanted to get this info out into the community because i'm sure others are seeking such enclosures for their projects.
