If you use a balanced feeder to connect your rig to your antenna system, you'll need this simple S-Match balanced "tuner" for your shack. The "tuner" will help match the impedance of your antenna to the impedance of your rig, insuring maximum power transfer and lowered SWR.
This video does an excellent job of taking you through the design and construction process of this simple balanced tuner. Although the author of this blog says the "tuner" can handle 100 watts, perhaps you would be more comfortable in using this device at power levels below 30 watts.
