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.
