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 ratesIT'S BUSINESS AS USUAL and we try to ship most orders (placed Mon-Fri before 1pm) the same day.

Our Slim-Jim kit is a great way to get yourself going on the 2m band.  A great performer whether in the loft or up a (non-conductive) pole - the kit includes a 3-page instruction guide making it an ideal starter project or even a virtual "club build".

Retevis RT84 DMR/FM TransceiverDual-Band DMR (and FM) - The Retevis RT84 DMR Transceiver is back in regular batches, so if you're keen to get yourself a decent VHF+UHF handheld, this is a good choice.  Comes programmed with UK repeaters and your local ones in a custom "Zone" for easy access.

Problem-Solver Ferrite Choke from Ham GoodiesFree your Shack from the Lock-Down Blues! If you're experiencing more HF noise than usual, 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 for your portable kit.  Check out the product page for details on how to use this as an effective mains filter for your Shack.

In garden or in the Shack - our range of /P goodies keep your aerial in the air and your wires neat+tidy. Dipole Centre Kit, Velcro Cable-Ties and don't forget the Wire Winders!

Fair-Rite FerritesBaluns 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/Balun.

Making 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.  We also stock the "flat core" ferrites for making the patch-leads featured in GM3SEK's "In Practice" series.

Radio Programming - Grab our FREE UK Repeater (and EchoLink) CSV file for CHIRP which you can use as a starting block to load memories into most VHF+UHF radios.
