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.
The 31-mix Problem Solver is in stock (for choking coax and mains cables), and is available at best UK price!
Don't let a small garden spoil your HF operating - The CobWebb is under 8ft square, resonant on 5 bands and a great project to build. We offer a complete Balun Box ready to fit onto the metalwork (details in the link).
Our 2m Slim-Jim Kit remains popular - that's because our kit includes everything you need to make a working aerial (plus a 3-page instruction guide). It works best on a non-conductive pole (such as a fishing-pole). Need to make an HF aerial? Our Dipole Centre Kit offers a way to feed a dipole with either coax or balanced-line - and includes all fixings plus aerial tips (great for newbies!).
If you run a Doublet or G5RV, it's good practice to fit a Balun at the ladder-line/coax intersection. Tests have shown that a 1:1 Current Balun is the best choice here: We sell 100-watt and 400-watt versions. The 400-watt model also has the option of increased choking on 160m/80m - for those of you lucky enough to have a really big garden!
Programming a handheld radio often throws-up a few issues, but it's not too difficult. If you're struggling, have a look at our video guide to using CHIRP
