U.S. manufacturing activity picked up in May as pent-up demand amid a reopening economy boosted orders, but unfinished work piled up because of shortages of raw materials and labor. Strong demand is a good problem to have, but that demand is increasingly straining manufacturers' ability like us to keep pace. We've tremendously speeded up our process but we still need more workers, raw materials and CNC manufacturing power. Nonetheless, we're doing pretty well considering that some manufacturing companies have seen the longest delays on the packaging end with lead-times for finished or raw goods of around 20-30 weeks!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT SUPPORT!
Shack-in-a-Box is pleased to announce that we are now partnered with Chameleon Antenna to offer package pricing with your Shack-in-a-Box go box and Chameleon Antenna!

First of all, thank you for being a loyal and consistent customer over the years. Your satisfaction means a lot to us, and we hope we’ve been successful in providing you excellent customer service/products.
While we have experienced moderate rising costs the last few years across several raw material categories, metals and polymers prices have risen at an alarming rate since the start of 2020 but mostly in 2021. Forecasters believe that these costs will continue to rise throughout the remainder of the year.
Nonetheless, we'll be forced to increase by a MINIMUM of 15 - 18% the cost of ALL our products starting 01/01/2022. So if you were planning to order one or several of our products, I would recommend you to so as soon as possible and BEFORE the end of 2021, if you want to take advantage of the current pricing.
Our new prices will allow us to better serve you and our future customers by giving us the opportunity to purchase materials in larger quantities thus reducing cost, lead and manufacturing time. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Our team is more than happy to help in any way.
Thanks again for your business, we appreciate it.

The Chameleon Antennas are made with the finest material available. They can be used for multiple purposes such as Mobile, Portable, Base station, Marine, EMCOMM, MARS/CAP, ARES, SATERN, RACES, First Responders, Emergency Preparedness, Skywarn, Military & Government communications and much more.
Mostly undetectable the Chameleon Antennas are very effective antennas for deed restricted lots and for quick deployment communication systems. Built to last they’ll survive very harsh conditions where other antennas fail.
The bandwidth capability of the Chameleon Antenna provides reliable and efficient communications. Unlike other multiband antennas, they require no changing of switches, jumpers or coils. Their simple design doesn’t require special assembly tools and they can be mounted by a single person under few minutes.
Chameleon Antenna has been a pioneer at rethinking and redesigning portable antenna systems since almost a decade! Pushing the limits of design and manufacturing with cutting edge technology, Chameleon Antenna are known to design, manufacture and distribute products worldwide that are versatile, dependable and built to last!
Established in 2008, Chameleon Antenna has been a great source of enjoyment for amateur radio operators. Their antenna designs have inspired other companies to also rethink their own antenna systems.
Chameleon Antenna is proudly manufacturing antennas that are 100% made in the USA.
All our products such as magnetic loop antenna, portable antenna and wire antenna, are proudly made in the United-States.
Our products are carefully engineered & CNC manufactured by qualified engineers.
Due to our exceptional craftsmanship skills, our products are standing out from the competition.
Our HF antennas are tested at a height of 25 ft. in “clear surroundings”, in an inverted V and/or sloper configurations. If your installation site does not meet these requirements, the tuning will yield high SWR and impaired performance. In any case, a good wide range tuner is recommended to lower SWR and broadband the SWR bandwidth for any model. We cannot answer questions about “if we think” non-standard installations would work because there is simply no way to know. Some work and some don’t.
