The Chameleon V1 KIT HF Multiband Antenna™ is a revolutionary antenna that stands at a only 8.5 feet tall and contains a unique trap coil design. This antenna is ideally designed for mobile, portable or base station purposes where space is limited. This lightweight antenna system covers 11 bands including: 6m, 10m, 11m (CB), 12m, 15m, 17m, 20m, 30m, 40m, 60m and 80m. The Chameleon V1 can also operate on the 70cm, 1.25m & 2m bands (144 MHz to 500 MHz) but is primarily a HF antenna. With an adequate installation, and with a tuner, the Chameleon V1 HF Multiband Antenna™ can operate on the USAF MARS/CAP (3.3MHz, 4.5MHz & 7.6MHz) bands.

Unlike other multiband antennas, the Chameleon V1 HF Multiband Antenna™ requires no changing of switches, jumpers, coils, etc. The simple screw together two-part system (4’2” each) makes it easy to manage, transport and store. It terminates to a standard 3/8 x 24. The Chameleon V1 KIT uses a super-flexible V1 whip design to withstand shock from obstructions without breakage or failing.
The V1 KIT is discontinued. See V1
