About 20 years ago I tried making a 40-10 inverted vee using flat
4-conductor rotor cable. I had seen an article describing it. Didn't
work, very high SWR on all bands. I discovered that as I peeled
away each set of wires and fanned them out a few feet, one band
at a time, that band would then have a decent SWR. Ended up with
all four bands fanned out and worked okay that way. Would have
been a lot easier to have done it that way to start with. Good luck.
