Welcome to Ham Goodies

We offer a variety of Amateur Radio goodies for not only the Shack, but also a range of outdoor/portable kit.  Our Baluns are made by us in our workshop and therefore we take pride in using not only the best quality materials - but also the right materials.  See About Us for more details.

We ship to the UK, Europe, Australia and United States (currency selector at the top of the page).  Click here for postage/shipping rates.  You can easily calculate the cost of shipping by adding items to the shopping cart and entering your Post/ZIP Code.

STATUS UPDATE 1st March: Most orders are being shipped within 1 working day but there may still be delays with Royal Mail which will affect areas differently (see their website under "Service Updates>Deliveries Today for a daily post-code update).  Some Balun products are being produced "to order" to keep parts stock healthy - so this may add an extra day before shipping.


The RTL SDR Dongle Receiver from Ham GoodiesRTL SDR Dongle pack includes your choice of coax adapter plus installation guide for receiving signals 25-1800MHz. A great way to track planes, listen to Hams on your local repeater and more.

Baluns and Ferrites : It's good practice to fit a BAL(anced) to UN(balanced) transformer where feeder meets aerial (or a different feeder).  For most Dipole/Doublet/G5RV installations up to 100w, we suggest this lightweight 1:1 Choke/BalunMaking your own? - 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.

Our Slim-Jim kit gets you going on the 2m band.  A great performer whether hanging in the loft or up a fibreglass pole - the kit includes a 3-page instruction guide making it ideal for the new Ham or something for a virtual "club build".

Problem-Solver Ferrite Choke from Ham GoodiesClean up your Shack! The 31-mix "Problem-Solver" makes a great mains filter for taming household "crud" as well as an ad-hoc RF choke on coaxial cables for your portable kit.  Check out the product page for details on how to use this as an effective mains filter for your Shack.

Our RG8-mini Patch Leads can also be specified with a pre-installed 8 or 12-turn choke - handy for use in the Shack as a cheaper alternative to our boxed solution.  We also stock the "flat core" ferrites for making the patch-leads featured in GM3SEK's "In Practice" series.

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.  We also have a Generic UK-wide DMR CodePlug for use with the Retevis RT84.
