On the standard HF bands, one trick is to make the
75 ohm line a multiple of 1/2 WL on each band.
A line that is a multiple of 1/2 WL on 40M will
be 1 WL on 20M, 1.5 WL on 15M, 2 WL on 10M.
A line that is a multiple of 1/2 WL on 80M will
work on 80, 40, 30 (with some SWR), 20, 17, 15, 12, 10M.
Another approach is to use 75 to 50 ohm matching transformers
at each end which would work for non-harmonically related
The third approach is to just live with the small increase in SWR.
