At 200 watts there will "probably" not be any damage
when feeding your gamma matched 15M beam on the
WARC bands. I would not try this with a KW!
If you have an 80M dipole (tuned for CW) give that a try.
It is roughly 3/2 WL on 30M, and almost exactly 5/2 WL
on 17, and 7/2 WL on 12M. My 80M dipoles are killers
at 30 degrees each side of the wire. It will still work if
the ends are sloped less than 30 degrees. Steeper
slopes put most of the energy into the earth with high
angle ground reflections.
A 20M dipole fed with ladderline provides a nice
figure 8 pattern from 10M through 30M and fills in
the gaps from an 80M antenna, assuming both
the 20 and 80 are broadside to the same directions.
That's all I use on the warc bands and the wires have
provided 300 +/- countries on each of the new bands!
