Ham Radio, or Amateur Radio is a communications and electronics hobby. Whether you're a buyer or a maker - we have a bit of everything for not only the Shack, but a range of outdoor/portable kit, too. From aerials to adapters, cables to controllers and sensors to SDR. 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 - Amateur Radio is, traditionally, a technical hobby and this means that some of our products are building-blocks as part of a larger project - and others are ready to use "as is".
Ham Goodies offer a range of add-ons for your handheld/mobile radio plus HF aerial parts, baluns and a small range of Arduino/Raspberry Pi "tech". We ship to the UK+Europe.
HARS Rally - St Neots (near Cambridge) - Monday 27th August at Ernulf Academy PE19 2SH. We'll have free DMR/FM handheld programming plus Baluns, Patch-Leads, Portable Goodies and some free "newbie" giveaways...
Don't let a small garden spoil your HF operating - The CobWebb is under 8ft square, resonant on 5 bands and a great summer project. We offer the Balun Box ready to fit to the metalwork (details in the link).
Going /P? Take your 2m handheld and built our 2m Slim-Jim Kit which can sit on your fishing-pole alongside your HF Inverted-V. Need to make an aerial? Our Dipole Centre Kit offers a way to feed a dipole with either coax or balanced-line - and includes all fixings plus aerial tips (great for newbies!). Why not encourage your club members to do more radio by offering a Slim-Jim kit or Dipole Centre Kit as a prize?
If you run a Doublet or G5RV, it's good practice to fit a Balun at the ladder-line/coax intersection. Tests have shown that a 1:1 Current Balun is the best choice here: We sell 100-watt and 400-watt versions. These use FT140-43 and FT240-31 ferrite toroids respectively. The 400-watt model also has the option of increased choking on 160m/80m - for those of you lucky enough to have a really big garden!
Programming a handheld radio often throws-up a few issues, but it's not too difficult. If you're struggling, have a look at our video guide to using CHIRP
