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).  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 as well as our pre-made solutions in QRP, 100w or 400w versions.  For most Dipole/Doublet/G5RV installations up to 100w, we suggest this lightweight 1:1 Choke/Balun.

Problem-Solver Ferrite Choke from Ham GoodiesThe 31-mix "Problem-Solver" makes a great mains filter for taming household "crud" as well as an ad-hoc RF choke for your /P kit.  Check out the product page for details on how to use this as an effective mains filter for your Shack.

Fancy some /P?  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!

CobWeb Balun from Ham GoodiesCheeky wire down the garden to keep the neighbours happy?  Choose from either a 9:1 UnUn (for random wires with/without ATU) or the End-Fed Halfwave matching unit for single or multi-band use.

CobWeb Balun - Be resonant on 5 popular HF bands with an aerial that's low-impact on the neighbours but high-impact on the airwaves:  Our popular CobWeb Balun Box is available in Standard or QRO versions - so if you like to put a few more Watts up your feeder, the QRO version is for you.

Our balun box forms the central part of the aerial: Just add a mounting bracket, spreaders and wires for a compact 20-10m solution - details of additional parts required can be found on the product page.
