It's time for some /P! With summer's portable operating season now upon us, ensure your aerial bits are sorted: Our choice of standard or large wire-winders take care of storing those dipoles. Grab a Dipole Centre Kit and some Velcro Cable Ties to complete the ensemble. We love a 2m Slim-Jim when visiting our local SOTA summit - our kit includes all the bits (just add coax to your radio), is easy to make and comes with full instructions.
Baluns and Ferrites : It's good practice to fit a BAL(anced) to UN(balanced) transformer where feeder meets aerial (or a different feeder). 8 turns of coax on an FT240-31 ferrite is OK for most Balun/Choke situations, but see the chart on our Ferrites page for further details as well as our pre-made solutions in QRP, 100w or 400w versions.
We've a new 9:1 UnUn which is great for use with "random" lengths of wire that typically present a high impedance so this box can bring it down to a range acceptable to your transceiver or its internal ATU. We also have an End-Fed Halfwave matching unit.
If there's something strange, on your waterfall... There's a chance that our 31-mix "Problem-Solver" can tame some of the electrical "crud" coming through the house wiring. It can also be used as an RF choke on coaxial cables. This item is a great way to test your coax and/or mains leads before committing to a permanent fix.
Got a New Radio? : Grab our FREE UK Repeater (and EchoLink) CSV file for CHIRP which you can use as a starting block to load memories into your radio. This file contains all GB3/GB7/MB6/MB7 systems for use with FM and digital (DMR, Fusion etc) radios.
