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 12th May: Most orders currently shipping within 1 working day.  Royal Mail seem to have gotten over the worst of their delays, but see their website under "Service Updates for any local issues.

Are you ready for /P?  It looks like portable operating will be happening this summer - so make sure 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 the coax feeder), is easy to make and comes with full instructions.

9:1 UnUn from Ham GoodiesWe'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.

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.

Problem-Solver Ferrite Choke from Ham GoodiesIf 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.
