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.  A number of products are made in our workshop and 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 18th Jan: Most orders are being shipped within 1-2 working days due to number of orders and manufacturing time required.  There may still be delays with Royal Mail which affects areas differently.  Some Balun products are being produced "to order" to keep supplies healthy - so this may add an extra day before shipping.

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 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 have 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.

Radio Programming - Here's a FREE UK Repeater (and EchoLink) CSV file for CHIRP which you can use as a starting block to load memories into a variety of VHF+UHF transceivers.
