Ham Radio, or Amateur Radio is a communications and electronics hobby. We have a bit of everything for not only the Shack, but a range of outdoor/portable kit, as well. 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. See About Us for more.
We ship to the UK+Europe. Please note that prices of some items may fluctuate as we try to be as competitive as possible.
We were asked to produce a "small" 4:1 Current Balun - and it's now available. Using the same enclosure as our 1:1 100w Dipole Balun it can be used "in the air" on an Off-Centre-Fed Dipole or as part of a Doublet (replacing the balun inside your tuner). Of course, if you prefer a QRO version, that's available, too).
It's summer - so make sure that your /P aerial is ready for another season by making use of our Dipole Centre kit. It forms an integral part of an HF Dipole or Doublet and can even be used at home in a permanent installation.
The Multi-UnUn offering 4:1, 9:1 and 16:1 ratios is ideal for use with long-wire aerials - 3 ratio taps allow you to match your wire to your radio (or ATU) when band-hopping.
If you're stuck for an "all-rounder" HF aerial for the garden that doesn't scare the neighbours, the 5-band CobWeb is a great project and we sell the completed Balun for it here. Just add metal hardware, spreaders and 5 dipole wires (20m-10m).
Still popular, the 2m Slim-Jim kit is a great way to get onto this popular band with it in the loft, outside on a pole or hanging from a holiday balcony - an easy-to-build kit and a great prize for a club-night raffle (or training gift).
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
