Hi Steve.  The 40 meter radials will work on 80.  If you can get 1/4 wave 
radials, it is better, but 1/8 wave radials are a lot better than no 
radials at all.  I have 3 40 meter verticals in a array, and a 160 meter 
inverted "L".  All of them have radials anywhere from 20 feet to 130 
feet, and they work fine.  Just put out as many as you can.  GL with the
