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.
We ship to the UK+Europe. Please note that prices of some items may fluctuate as we try to be as competitive as possible.
2m Slim-Jim Aerial Kit just £9. This week (and over the weekend) sees a range of product offers.
Baluns : How do you select the best ferrite toroid material for your intended use? We've produced a chart which shows how each type performs. If you'd prefer a built one, we produce Baluns in a variety of configurations and power ratings - including a QRP "micro" balun/choke. For most Dipole/Doublet installations for up to 100w, we like this 1:1 Choke/Balun. If you'd prefer QRO or something more suited to frequencies below 14MHz, our 400w Doublet/G5RV Choke is ideal.
Aerial Construction : If you want to build a great performance aerial for 2m, our 2m Slim-Jim kit is a great way to get into your local repeaters, chat with local Hams and enjoy a bit of "home brew" in the process. It can work in the loft, outside on a (non-conductive) pole or hanging from a balcony - an easy-to-build kit that makes a great "just passed the exam" gift.
Doing it Portable? Whether you're /P from the park, the beach or even a summit, we've got a few essential bits for your kit-bag: Grab one of our Dipole Centre kits which forms an integral part of an HF Dipole or Doublet. Velcro Cable Ties keep everything tidy and our Aerial Rigging Cord is just £4 for 20m.
A 12v battery oftens means voltage-drop (and poor TX performance) on long DC cable runs - Our 1m DC Cables are available with either 4 or 6 pin connectors to suit Icom, Kenwood and Yaesu radios.
The Multi-UnUn offering 4:1, 9:1 and 16:1 ratios is ideal for use with long-wire aerials - 3 ratio taps allow you to match your wire to your radio (or ATU) when band-hopping.
