Hi, can anyone please help. I am about to put up a 1/2 wave silver rod on a 30ft pole. Do I need to make a balun/choke and if so, what size do I make it. thank you.

No you dont need a ballun , They are generally only needed in a mismatched antenna . A ballun will most likely cause problems if you intend to run a big burner as the winding will likley try to restrict the flow of RF to the antenna . .
