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.
What's New / Updates
If you've just got your licence and want to build a great performance aerial for 2m, our popular 2m Slim-Jim kit is a great way to get into your local repeaters, chat with local Hams and enjoy a bit of "home brew" in the process. It can work in the loft, outside on a (non-conductive) pole or hanging from a holiday balcony - an easy-to-build kit and even a great prize for a club-night raffle (or training gift).
Baluns: We've been asked a few times if we could 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 also available.
Going Portable? Summer means /P from the park, beach or even a summit if you're feeling adventurous! Grab one of our Dipole Centre kits which forms an integral part of an HF Dipole or Doublet. Velcro Cable Ties keep everything tidy and our Aerial Rigging Cord is just £4 for 20m.
Fear not the voltage-drop from your 12v battery! Our 1m DC Cables are available with 4 or 6 pin connectors for most Icom, Kenwood and Yaesu radios.
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).
