Welcome to Ham Goodies

Ham Radio, or Amateur Radio is a communications and electronics hobby.  Whether you're a buyer or a maker - we have a bit of everything for not only the Shack, but a range of outdoor/portable kit, too.  From aerials to adapters, cables to controllers and sensors to SDR.  A number of products are made in-house, and we take pride in using not only the best quality materials but also the right materials - Amateur Radio is, traditionally, a technical hobby and this means that some of our products are building-blocks as part of a larger project - and others are ready to use "as is".

Ham Goodies offer a range of add-ons for your handheld/mobile radio plus HF aerial parts, baluns and a small range of Arduino/Raspberry Pi "tech".  We ship to the UK+Europe.

BRATS Rally - Chatham 25th February - We'll be exhibiting at the Victory Academy with a range of our products plus FREE DMR+FM programming, M6 handouts and more.  Cash/card payments accepted.

The Essex/South-East CodePlugs for the MD-2017/RT-82 (and MD-380) were updated on January 9th with the most recent "Contacts List" heard on the network.

Getting ready for /P?  Our 2m Slim-Jim Kit is great for hill-top FM working, and much better than a rubber-duck.  Works great when affixed to any non-metallic support.  Don't forget our Dipole Centre Kit which now includes end-insulators!

Programming a radio isn't too difficult, but if you're struggling, have a look at our video guide to using CHIRP

Ham What?
Foundation Online by Essex HamIf you're interested in finding-out more about Ham Radio then our friends at Essex Ham have offer Foundation Online which lets you study for your Foundation Licence from the comfort of your own home/computer/tablet.  Foundation Online combines videos, presentations and a virtual classroom to help people of all ages to get started in amateur radio. Courses are FREE, but you'll still need to complete your practicals and sit an exam at a registered centre (usually on-demand at a local radio club).

Interested?  Amateur Radio isn't just about men in sheds and Morse Code, Hams are using Arduinos, Raspberry Pi's and open-source software to enhance their communication hobby.  See Essex Ham's What is Amateur Radio? page for an introduction to the hobby.
