For starters, look at the antenna patterns for a G5RV and
80 Meter Dipole when used on higher bands in any ARRL
Antenna Book or Handbook.
I use a 20M dipole fed with ladderline which has a figure 80 pattern
from 10 thorugh 30 meters to supplement several 80M dipoles by
filling in the pattern nulls of the 80M dipoles on the WARC bands.
