A Zero Five should work OK on 40, 30, and 20, and better if you have a
remote tuner located at the base of the antenna. With a remote tuner
operation on 80 may also be acceptable. Feedline loss without the
remote tuner can be large. Above 20 meters the take-off angle goes way
up and the gain at useful low angles drops by a lot. Here is some info
on feedline and ground losses.
