    T-match circuits are typically used for antenna systems that have a wide range of reactances/impedances. Why do you want to use it on the input of an amp? I use a common pi-network matcher on my untuned amp. Works great.

    You might be able to get it low enough with just a trimmer cap.

    I thought that T-network were primarily High Pass Filter; shows you what I know....

    Electrically, in your application, the "T-Match" is a paralled tuned circuit that will be fed with a Capacitor that is tapped somewhere down the coil.

    Stick with the tried and trusted Pi-network.

    yeah, sticking with pi circuit. Seems way simpler and more straight forward
