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.
