What makes you think they will be made in Bulgaria? I thought it would be in the PCT Yantai, PRC factory.

There has been an severe issue getting hardware these past months ,so I can only advise based what I was told .The issue of tariffs has played a factor into decisions being made . In fact I was told it lead to the 9521HD being discontinued . So hopefully next month when the V3 units start to become available through distribution we will get an idea how well this next change is received .

As always, CM will produce them where they can make maximum profit with little concern with creating US jobs.
That's why i have used nothing but made in USA Winegard for 40 years.

About 10 years ago Channel Master shut down their North Carolina manufacturing facility and moved their headquarters to Arizona. Now their antennas are made in China. Some of their original antenna designs are no longer manufactured. As for Winegard, their primary antennas are still made in the USA, but their amplifiers may also be made overseas as well. But I do wish Winegard would still make some of their UHF yagi antennas and the 4bay and 8bay versions.

Also I notice in the specs the new version 3 of the 7777 preamp has the gain lowered to 26db, so maybe overload issues won't be as problematic as before when it was 30db.
