The Slim-Jim is a bit of a classic - equally at home whether it's up a telescopic pole or hanging from a holiday balcony!  It offers considerable gain over a "rubber duck" and when made from "ladder-line", can be rolled-up and transported in a bag/suitcase.

Our kit includes everything you need to build the aerial with just a soldering-iron and a pair of wire-cutters.  We've marked the bottom-part of the ladder-line where you'll need to solder the coax - minor adjustments may be required using a simple SWR meter.

This is a great project for any Foundation/Intermediate licence-holder or perhaps part of a "club build" event.

Difficulty : 3/5 - Some soldering experience is advised, but, with care and/or guidance, this project can be suitable for a beginner.  Some assistance may be required during the SWR/matching process.


  • Approx 150cm of 450-ohm ladder-line
  • 30cm RG58 cable with pre-fitted in-line SO239 socket
  • Snap-on ferrite choke - keeps RF from flowing back down the coax
  • Heat-shrink tubing to protect solder-joints
  • Velcro cable-tie for storage/support
  • Comes with 3-page build+tuning instructions, but if you don't need them, you'll save £1
  • Great QRP /P aerial, but easily handles over 50-watts
  • Also presents a reasonable SWR on 70cm

This is a complete antenna kit that just requires a suitable length of coax to connect to your radio.

If you have a requirement for more than we are showing in-stock, perhaps for a club-build or group project - please get in touch.
