AMATEUR RADIO FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Antennas including linked dipoles, telescopic poles also ham radio kits - everything you need.
If you are thinking of leaving your ham shack with your radio, take a look. We can help.

I have spent years searching for the ideal way of winding up antenna wire for use in the field. These special winders are just about perfect! Lightweight and with an elastic fastener to secure the wire, they are quick and easy to use.
Wire winders ensure tangle-free aerials and rapid deployment - perfect! Great for SOTA, caravanning and DXpeditions!
Use a figure-of-eight winding technique which helps to ensure no kinks in the wire.
We recommend three winders for a dipole fed with RG174 (one for each half of the dipole and one for the co-ax and back guy). Two winders are usually adequate for a dipole fed with RG58 (cable coiled separately).
Each winder weighs 1.25 oz (36g). Length 24.5 cm (9.75 inches).
If you are making antennas using our Wirewinders, consider investing in one of our rugged antenna bags - designed for use with Wirewinders.

Not only does this works well to keep the wire stored nicely, I was surprised how quickly deployment and cleanup happen once you get into the winding and unwinding rhythm.
I liked it so much, I bought a second one just to have around.

A wire winder that does its job. Keeps the antenna in good order and is easy to handle.

It works nicely, storing my wire antennas in good order and do not add to much of weight. First i think it was a little to soft but using it a couple of times the softness is good. It take good shape in my backpack.

These things are great. I can almost rewind the wire as fast as it pays out. #18 is the heaviest wire I've used on them.

Great, simple product that prevents me from getting my antennas tangles better than any other I've used.

I wouldn't use anything else to wind wires. It's quick, compact and does the job. I tried spools but that was too much of a pain.

I wish that you can order it in the color you want but it is great
[Admin: we are happy to send whatever colours you want - just ask!]

Glad I ordered 3 of these. Perhaps should have ordered 3 more. I use them for the wires & feed line for the inverted vee I built from SB wire & components. The winders keep everything tidy for deployment. If you use 3 winders as I have, do find or buy a bag to keep the stress on the connections to the center support at a minimum, especially with lightweight wire & Pico components.
If I had another, I'd use it for my EFHW wire antenna. Wire on the winder would not be as compact a package, but figure 8 wrap on the winder might eliminate some of the coil tangle that tends to happen when I coil my EFHW compactly for storage/transport.

Keeping wires and guys tidy is always a pain, but these make it simple.
