Chaparral is recognized for its quality products, innovative designs, responsive customer service, and leadership in the satellite reception system industry. The primary product lines include Chaparral’s traditional Direct-To-Home (DTH) products as well as the new commercial line of products.

Chaparral commenced operations in 1980 with the introduction of the Super Feed, a low-cost microwave feedhorn which improved receiving antenna performance and helped make home satellite television reception affordable for thousands of rural Americans. In late 1981 Chaparral revolutionized home satellite television reception with the Polarotor® feedhorn, featuring a unique, rotating probe that simplifies channel selection and polarity control. This patented design has become the industry standard and numerous Chaparral feedhorn models, used throughout the world, are based upon it.
