Antenna Genius Questions???

I see that the Antenna Genius is made with 8 antenna ports and the connection for your radio. Or, it is what they call the 8-1 model. Will Flexradio be selling that or are they only selling the 8-2 model? Also, I assume this unit can be mounted out on the tower? The reason I ask the question is because I saw a Youtube video where a person had the unit mounted indoors. I would hope the unit would be waterproof. I am currently using a DXE 8 port switch for one radio. And it is mounted out on my tower. The only cable I would have to run into the shack would be the LAN Cable so that I could connect it to my router. I also thought of another question, how is the unit powered? Is the LAN Cable the power source, or from another source? Thanks!

    The AG would need to be mounted in a weatherproof box. it requires coax from radio, LAN and 12 VDC.
