Welcome to Ham Goodies

We offer a variety of Amateur Radio bits 'n' pieces for not only the Shack, but also a range of outdoor portable kit.  Our Baluns are made in our workshop and therefore pride is taken in using not only the best quality materials - but also the right materials.  See About Us for more details.

We ship to the UK, Ireland and Europe (if your Country is in the drop-down box on the Register page, we can ship to you).  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.  Some items, particularly ferrites, attract a quantity discount - ideal for club/group buys.  Prices on ferrites are competitive but do vary with the market.

2x FT240-31 Choke/Isolator with 12-turns of RG142Baluns are our thing - and you'll find various Balun and Choke solutions here.  We believe that using the right ferrite size (and material) is important.  We keep a good stock all kinds of ferrites for your own projects.  Shown here is a QRO Choke featuring 2x FT240 toroids wound using RG142 coax.

Whether you run a Dipole, Doublet/G5RV, End-Fed or need something for behind the ATU - we have a solution for you!  If you're not sure which Balun or Ferrite Toroid is best for your situation - we've produced a handy reference page to help.  For most Dipole/Doublet/G5RV installations up to 100w, we suggest this lightweight 1:1 Choke/Balun.

Dipole Centre kit from Ham GoodiesIt's time to go "Portable" - untangle those wires, check that everything is ready for your next bit of /P!  Our standard and large wire-winders take care of storing those dipoles.  Grab a Dipole Centre Kit, a pack of our Velcro Cable Ties, some Rigging Cord and a Storage Bag to complete the ensemble.

Our Dipole Centre Kit be used as the integral part of a Dipole or Doublet and is ideal for use at home or /P.  By connecting your feeder directly, you can save the weight of a PL259/SO239 combination.  For VHF, you can't beat a 2m Slim-Jim - available in kit-form or ready-built.

Patch Leads - For connections around the Shack (and outdoors), our Mini-8 Patch Leads take care of radio-to-ATU hookups plus there's the option of a ferrite.  Leads also come in PL259/SO239 variants for quick "in-line" tests on cable runs.

If there's something strange, on your waterfall... The rise of work-from-home means more electrical nasties in your neighbourhood, and it don't look good!  Thankfully, 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.
