W8JI's site--if it has to do with ampllfiers, baluns, feedlines, or antennas (especially 160 or 80/75 meters), then Tom is THE man.  He actually designed several of the Ameritron HF amplifiers that are among the most popular in amateur radio, and the extremely well-made baluns marketed by DX Engineering.  N4KC uses both.  His tutorial on how to tune up an amp is worth the visit alone.
