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. 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. See About Us for more.

The RTL SDR Dongle remains a great way to listen to a variety of VHF/UHF frequencies: Aircraft, Amateur Radio, Business Radio and more - includes your choice of BNC/SO239 aerial adapter for use with an external antenna.
The Multi-UnUn offering 4:1, 9:1 and 16:1 ratios is now back in stock - ideal for use with long-wire aerials.
If you're stuck for an "all-rounder" HF aerial for the garden that doesn't scare the neighbours, the 5-band CobWeb is a great project and we sell the completed Balun for it here. Just add metal hardware, spreaders and 5 dipole wires (20m-10m).
Still popular, the 2m Slim-Jim kit is a great way to get onto this popular band with it in the loft, outside on a pole or hanging from a holiday balcony!
We have a new Balun! It's a 4:1 Current Balun using a 2-core design (the correct way to do it) and is a result of requests for a "true" Current Balun with a 4:1 ratio - see here for details.
