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. 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.
We ship to the UK+Europe.
LAST PRE-XMAS POSTING DAY for 1st-Class is Thursday 20th December
We'll also post on 27th+28th Dec before resuming on Wednesday 2nd January 2019. If you order on Friday 21st December, you must select "Special Delivery" to get it before Xmas! Please note that e-mail response times will also be subject to Festive QRM!
Winter is here - So what projects can we help you with?
How about taming electrical QRM using the 31-mix Problem Solver which is a snap-on ferrite that's ideal for dealing with common-mode nasties! We also sell smaller snap-on ferrites in 5mm and 9mm sizes.
DMR CodePlugs : We recently updated our "South East" MD-380 and MD-2017/RT-82 CodePlugs with "last heard" and "All UK Contacts" respectively. They can be downloaded from here.
Don't let a small garden spoil your HF operating - The CobWebb is under 8ft square, resonant on 5 bands and a great project to build. We offer a complete Balun Box ready to fit onto the metalwork (details in the link).
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.
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
