MFJ has a 80/40/20 vertical. The 40 and 20 meter portions are in

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).
