Q: The MPAS 2.0 MICRO and the CHA TDL both come with the HYBRID-MICRO. I do not need two of them. What is the best price/value for combining both packages?
A: The best route in this case would be to order the Hybrid-Mini (higher power, larger) version of the MPAS 2.0 antenna. The CHA TDL comes with a Hybrid-Micro (lower power, better portability) providing access to both advantages interchangeably.
Q: What info is there about waterproofing the MPAS 2.0?
A: The SO-239 coax connection should always be weather-proofed. The unit itself is weather-proof already. The whips should be protected from moisture using an anti-oxidant compound for anything other than a temporary installation.
Q: How much for just the Mini/Micro unit without the wire?
A: The Hybrid Micro is available separately for$225 + shipping, the Hybrid Mini is available separately for $250+shipping.
Q: Do you have any recommendations for a remote tuner that works with the F-Loop?
A: None currently exist but we are prototyping a new design remote tuner for the F Loop antenna. We will have an announcement when the new unit goes into production, and we invite you to subscribe to the Chameleon Antenna newsletter to stay informed on progress with the new tuner.
Q: How much is wire per ft. purchased from Chameleon?
A: Bulk wire is available in several pre-cut lengths on our website. All of our replacement finished wire sets for our antennas also come with a custom winder.
Q: How much is just the TDL Hub without the wire?
A: $100 + shipping
Q: I am interested in the MPAS 2.0 antenna. Can you tell me more about it?
A: Here are some common features that are sometimes missed or often go unexplained (regarding the MPAS 2.0 system.)
- The Mil Ext 2.0 fits into the accompanying backpack in the largest (vertical/rear) zipper compartment. It’s a snug fit but diagonally it will fit inside.
- MPAS 2.0 System weather-proofing: The SO-239 coax connection should always be weather-proofed. The unit itself is weather-proof already. The whips should be protected from moisture using an anti-oxidant compound for anything other than a temporary installation.
- Chameleon Antenna customers have the option to order the MPAS 2.0 with a Hybrid Micro (100 SSB or 50W CW) or the Hybrid Mini (500W SSB or 250W CW.) The Hybrid Mini uses a different transformer, has a larger enclosure, and is slightly heavier than the Hybrid Micro.
- By purchasing the Hub Kit and two SS17’s owners of the MPAS 2.0 antenna can crossover to the Tactical Delta Loop (TDL) antenna. This is one of our most popular vertical antennas.
- UCM and Jawmount are useful accessories.
