MFJ has a 80/40/20 vertical.  The 40 and 20 meter portions are in  
parallel (80 uses a coil and top loading at the end of the 40 meter  
section.  I don't have any information regarding performance or  

Another possibility would be a Cushcraft R8 or Hy-Gain AV640, both of  
which cover 40-6 meters).  I have had a AV640 up for the past 7 years  
and have been satisfied with the performance (i.e., it won't compete  
with yagis on  tall towers, but exceeds my expectations).
